Orange film in Toronto this weekend

If you're planning to take in the Toronto Ukrainian Festival this Labour Day weekend, make sure to catch Damyan Kolodiy's documentary film Orange Chronicles.

Somewhat of a departure from other films analysing and dissecting the Orange Revolution, the focus of this one is the charisma and personal magnetism of Yulia Tymoshenko. The film has been likened to Andrew Lloyd Webber’s 'Evita' and the film-maker to a Ukrainian-American Michael Moore, so it sounds like a film not to miss.

Information on the Orange Chronicles film, as well as DVD purchasing information, can be found here. (There is a link to a trailer but it didn't work for me. Maybe you'll have better luck.)

At any rate, if you're in the Toronto area you can see it in a theatre setting at the Festival. If I lived in the area, I'd be at both for sure! So if you live close by (lucky you!) do take it in ... and think of me! If you're so inclined, come back here and let the rest of us know how it went.
