No Canadian city has been featured in cinema more than Toronto. The reel city of Toronto is a place of fascinating complexity, rich contradiction, and radical transformation. In Toronto on Film, Geoff Pevere looks at Toronto's portrayal by filmmakers such as David Cronenberg and Atom Egoyan and in seminal films such as Don Owen's Nobody Waved Goodbye and Don Shebib's Goin' Down the Road. Pevere shows how filmmakers such as Deepa Mehta (Sam and Me, Bollywood/Hollywood) and Srnivas Krishna (Masala) created an alternative and magical view of the city. The book also includes essays by critic and scholar Matthew Hays; Toronto International Film Festival co-director and CEO Piers Handling; former Take One editor and publisher, Wyndham Wise; filmmaker and scholar Brenda Longfellow; and associate director of Canadian programming at TIFF, Steve Gravestock.
