Hot Docs here we come

Arrived in Toronto today to get things started. Great pre-festival reviews so far. “An emotionally absorbing subject filled with layers of complexity” – Now Toronto; “Foster families are always complex subjects, but Julia Ivanova’s film about one such Ukrainian family is masterfully packed with more societal and psychological issues than any other film showing at HotDocs this year. Five Stars” – CritisizeThis.ca; “This film is one of the most complex pieces of filmmaking I have seen in years.” – Andrew Parker’s pics for Dorkshelf; “Ivanova’s graceful cinematography gives viewers a unique perspective.” – Torontoist.

Canadian premiere is May 2nd and is sold out. It’s now up to the audience. Will update shortly.
