‘Navajo’ kicks off Planet fest in Toronto

World Brief

The third Planet in Focus Toronto Intl. Environmental Film and Video Festival kicked off Wednesday with Jeff Spitz’s “Return of the Navajo Boy” (U.S.) and the Canadian short “Child of Chernobyl,” directed by Eva Ziemsen.

Six-day fest has a 38-film slate of films from around the world, including world preems of the Australian wildlife film sendup “Bilby Brothers — The Men Who Killed the Easter Bunny,” from Jim Stevens, and Canuck Carole Poliquin’s “The Bottom Line: Privatizing the World.”

Environmentalist David Suzuki addressed the opening-night throng and offered a sneak preview of his four-part series “The Sacred Balance,” which will air later this year on U.S. and Canuck pubcasters PBS and CBC, respectively.
