The masters program of the 24th Toronto Intl. Film Festival will feature 13 films from internationally renowned filmmakers. They include Peter Greenaway’s “Eight and a Half Women,” Carlos Saura’s “Goya in Bordeaux,” Chen Kaige’s “The Emperor and the Assassin” and Alexander Sokurov’s “Moloch.”
Mexican master Arturo Ripstein offers “No One Writes to the Colonel,” an adaptation of the Gabriel Garcia Marquez novella. Italian helmer Marco Bellocchio’s adaptation of the Luigi Pirandello story “The Wet Nurse” also is on the list. Aki Kaurismaki’s innovative silent film “Juha” will unspool at the fest as well.
Fest organizers added two more titles to the special presentation lineup: “The Hurricane,” a Norman Jewison work-in-progress starring Denzel Washington, and Randall Harris’ feature film debut, “Wayward Son,” with Harry Connick Jr.
