The Tracey Fragments - Releases in Canada - NOV. 2
Canadian filmmaker Bruce McDonald's experimental new film The Tracey Fragments has been turning heads on the festival circuit for some time now. The combination of McDonald's raw shooting style with the films popping editing style, another fine performance from rising star Ellen Page and gorgeous soundtrack from Broken Social Scene is something special. I caught it in TIFF where it was one of the better films on display and surprisingly one of the more avant garde ones as well. Yes, this is absolutely worth seeing on the big screen. The film is being rolled out on Canadian screens (albeit only 3 of them) November 2nd. (there is no word of commercial release outside Canada and the festival circuit at this point). As a bonus, those three screens (below) are also showing the jaw-dropping NFB short Madame Tutli Putli in front of The Tracey Fragments. Nice! Also, for anyone in Toronto, the film has a Cinematheque (who are doing a retrospective of McDonald's films this month) screening this Friday (Oct. 19) with Bruce McDonald in attendance.
Toronto - The Royal - Friday November 2nd
Vancouver - Tinseltown - Friday November 2nd
Montreal - theatre TBC - Friday November 2nd
