Atlantic Auteurs - Program One showcases recent work by well-known names in the film community paired with exciting offerings from new local voices. Halifax treasure James MacSwain strikes again with his fresh 16mm animation The Red Purse based on a story from the Halifax Explosion and shot in James’ unmistakable charming style. After the success of her feature film Werewolf, Ashley McKenzie returns to HIFF with a meditative journey through a Cape Breton waterfall in Martha Brook Falls. Todd Fraser continues his process-based experiments using both DV camera and 16mm hand-processed film in the surprisingly funny it’s good to go see different areas. A bold new voice that stands out is Petra O’Toole with Madár, an understated documentary evoking big questions as an elderly woman attempts to rescue a dying bird.
