Pantsworthy: Hot Docs – May 3, 2016

Sophie’s Choice! 2 docs at 10am today. One will live will fight for your time and attention another day…
De Palma
10:00 AM Isabel Bader Theatre

De Palma gave us “Say hello to my little friend.” The excellent Batter Up Untoucables scene. And I can’t talk about Carrie without night terrors. A vital contributor to American New Wave (those glory days are over, huh?) this doc recognizes De Palma’s evocative contributions to cinema…and our pop culture.

How to Build a Time Machine
10:00 AM TIFF Bell Lightbox 2

From the Hot Docs description: “These cinematic visuals entwine with Mallett’s compelling explanation of how science fiction might not be that far-fetched after all.” I attended a Time Traveler Convetion in 2005 so if there is a possibility Time Machines could be real I’m so ready. Let’s Do This.

Frame 394
6:30 PM Isabel Bader Theatre Screening with Do Not Resist

Got an insider tip…the footage of the white cop shooting a black civilian is not as it seems. (How sad is it that one has to ask which cop shooting incidence?). These short docs excel far better than the news.
