FILM PREMIERES

Ricky (2009)
Sunday, September 5 at 9 p.m.

Award winning director François Ozon blends magic realism and a tale of family in the film Ricky. When an ordinary woman meets an ordinary man, they fall in love and start an ordinary life together. However, something extraordinary is added to the mix: a baby named Ricky, who develops a functioning set of wings.

Passing Strange (2009)
Saturday, September 11 at 9 p.m. (Day and Date with the U.S.)

In a Sundance Channel world premiere, Spike Lee presents his cinematic version of the Tony Award-winning musical, Passing Strange. Set in the late 1970s, a young black musician (Daniel Breaker) travels on a journey to rebel against his mother and his middle-class upbringing in a church-going, South Central Los Angeles neighbourhood. During his journey, he moves through a number of musical styles from a background of gospel to punk, blues, jazz, and rock.

Man in the Chair (2007)
Saturday, September 18 at 9 p.m.

Christopher Plummer stars as Flash, a mean-spirited, Hollywood retiree and the only surviving crew member from Orson Welles’ film Citizen Kane. Flash is approached by a teenage misfit named Cameron (Michael Angarano), who has entered a student film contest. Flash agrees to help Cameron make his film, a project that will change his life.

Afterschool (2008) premieres Saturday, September 25 at 9 p.m.
Robert is a student at an elite East Coast preparatory school whose life is drastically changed when he accidentally films the death of two classmates. The video footage is used as part of an audio-visual document intended to speed up the campus-wide healing process, but instead it creates an atmosphere of paranoia and unease among students and teachers.
