GUEST OF HONOUR | FILM D'OUVERTURE
Information on the activity
October 9, 2019 to October 19, 2019
When her father dies, Veronica confesses the many tangled secrets buried in her family history. Jim was a food inspector, a shadowy figure roaming the city in search of sanitation code violations in family-run restaurants that double as fascinating microcosms. Veronica, a talented music teacher, has spent many years in prison, but maybe not for the right crime. Atom Egoyan is back with a vengeance in this dizzying story-within-a-story, pursuing his favourite themes of grief, memory, guilt and communication. A passionately complex work of greatness.
