Hot Docs Festival

The Hot Docs Festival in Toronto is mid way through. I’ll admit that I’ve only found out about this festival yesterday and that’s a shame. The lineup of docs in this festival is amazing. The following stood out as I went alphabetically. It’s not possible to check all of them out now. I’ll get back to them later.

I’ve done a similar post on music docs for my Guitarkadia blog.

This one looks good although I wonder why the main subject is speaking in Hindi. I know you folks won’t give a shit since you’d care less for the difference but if the main character is not Bengali then the title doesn’t make a lot of sense. The film, however, I’d watch because you can’t make this shit up. No wonder Fox Searchlight is doing a remake. Yes, so I learned that Rajesh Ji (the main character) is actually Bihari. Does it matter?

A year inside an Intercontinental airport, the filmmaker captured what goes on inside. Although ending the trailer with that sound is a little hokey, unless it really happened.
