Exhibition on Screen: MICHELANGELO: LOVE AND DEATH

The towering statue of David, the deeply moving Pietà in the Papal Basilica of St. Peter and his tour-de-force, the Sistine Chapel ceiling—the work of very few artists in history is as well known and well regarded as Michelangelo’s, but the man himself is a mystery to most. Michelangelo: Love and Death looks beyond the masterpieces and delves into an intensely researched exploration of his storied life, daunting ambitions and monumental accomplishments.

Alternative Facts Survival Guide: Take heart! Today's best journalists arm you with the intellectual tools needed to decode a world of fake news.

SACRED

Exultant and mind-expanding, Sacred takes you around the world and immerses you in spiritual practices in more than 25 countries. Shot by over 40 filmmaking teams, Academy Award–winner Thomas Lennon orchestrates this immersive and revelatory look at religion in its various forms with a celebratory undertone, offering a refreshingly positive tribute to the universality of faith and belief, whether it’s Buddhist monks in Japan or a woman watering her garden in Vancouver. Visually dazzling, emotionally stirring and gigantic in scope—you’ve never seen anything quite like it.

SCORE: THE FILM MUSIC DOCUMENTARY

From the dun-nun of Jaws and the triumphant trumpets of Rocky, to the harrowing strings of Psycho and the slow build of Star Wars—there is an undeniable art and power to the film score that lingers long after the credits roll. For decades now, film composers have been responsible for some of the greatest music being produced.

RUMBLE: THE INDIANS WHO ROCKED THE WORLD

Winner of the Rogers Audience Award for Best Canadian Documentary at Hot Docs 2017, RUMBLE: THE INDIANS WHO ROCKED THE WORLD reveals an essential and, until now, missing chapter in the history of popular music: the Indigenous influence. Lifting the veil on the enormous impact made by First Nations and Native American musicians including Robbie Robertson, Link Wray, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Charley Patton, Jimi Hendrix, Jesse Ed Davis and more, Rumble celebrates their genre-changing and undeniably catchy influence.

A BETTER MAN

We bring back one of hottest tickets at this year's Hot Docs festival to give Toronto a chance to catch this early favourite. Over 20 years ago, Toronto-based Attiya Khan was in a physically abusive relationship with her then-boyfriend, Steve. Today, she’s a prominent feminist who has worked for women’s shelters across the U.S. and Canada. Khan has teamed with local filmmaker Lawrence Jackman to create a unique documentary that aims to evolve the conversation around domestic abuse.
