Gimme Some Truth: El Toro

Sun, Nov 4 / 7 pm & 8:30 pm *
* Second screening added!
Directed by Danielle Sturk
2018, Canada, 43 min

Introduction and Q&A with Danielle Sturk. Followed by a closing night reception.

Romance and tragedy bind eight siblings who work with their parents at their family-run truck stop diner deep in the entrails of 1960’s industrial Saint-Boniface. El Toro may no longer exist between the old Canada Packers and the Union Stock Yards but it still very much exists in the minds of the surviving DeGagné brood. The film El Toro rebuilds the walls, stools, and atmosphere of the restaurant, recreating a surreal, rich, and imaginative world, evoking a lost time and place through the lens of memory, nostalgia and love. And yes, animals were consumed, filmed, drawn, and animated in this hybrid documentary.

Plays with The Price of Daily Bread / Directed by John Paskievich & Mike Mirus, 1985, Canada, 16 min / Anthony Nahuliak, his wife and daughter, farm near Hodgson in the Manitoba Interlake, on land that has been in the family for generations. Now they must sell their farm equipment, house, and land to pay the bank. This movie seems one of Paskievich’s harshest yet it is also one of his most tender because it so succinctly narrates the very act of displacement.

PRESENTED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH DOC WINNIPEG WITH THE GENEROUS SUPPORT OF ON SCREEN MANITOBA.
