Acclaimed 2009 documentary A Place Called Los Pereyra returns to Toronto this week for an exclusive screening run at the Projection Booth.
Director AndrÃ©s Livov”Macklin opened up the other side of charity – the recipients – when he filmed this small town in Argentina. It charts the effect that a group of well-to-do teenaged girls on their annual charity mission have on the resident children. By changing perspective, the film allows us to question the intention and outcome of charitable work on several levels, maybe most especially the often overlooked emotional component. Playing daily from May 11-17, 2012 at the Projection Booth (1035 Gerrard St. E), the opening night on Friday, May 11 features a cocktail reception at 7:00 pm and a post-screening Q&A with producer Hugh Gibson and Toronto film critic Adam Nayman.
Tickets for the opening night can be purchased online in advance, and for all other screenings, tickets can be purchased in person at the box office. Check out the trailer at the film’s website, and see the Projection Booth website for further details, including a list of screening times.
