Published Apr 06, 2016While we're still months away from this year's Toronto International Film Festival, the TIFF Cinematheque continues to offer an excellent selection of programming. Up next, they'll display some recently restored films.
The series is fittingly titled Restored!, and will pay tribute to some recently restored masterpieces from around the world. It takes place from April 9 to 26 at the TIFF Bell Lightbox.
Top billing at the series goes to a 4K presentation of Otto Preminger's Bunny Lake Is Missing (1965) along with a 35mm print of Kon Ichikawa's An Actor's Revenge.
Other films playing the series include digital restorations of Lino Brocka's Insiang (1976), John Frankenheimer's The Manchurian Candidate (1962) and King Hu's A Touch of Zen (1971).
There will also be a screening of the classic German silent film Variety (1925), which will be presented with a live piano score from William O'Meara.
Further, the series will also include a screening of Chantal Akerman's Jeanne Dielman, 23, quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles (1975). Akerman will be celebrated further with a screening of her final film No Home Movie (2015) and its accompanying documentary I Don't Belong Anywhere: The Cinema of Chantal Akerman (2015).
