Toronto Adds Two Premieres

Toronto Adds Two Premieres

Two late additions to the 34th Toronto International Film Festival were announced today, joining the now 273 features strong lineup for the September 10-19 event. The North American premiere of Iranian filmmaker Hana Makhmalbaf’s “Green Days” joins the Vanguard program, while Zhuangzhuang Tian’s “The Warrior and the Wolf” will screen as a Speical Presentation.

“Days” follows an Iranian playwright who suffers a creative crisis as her country convulses on the eve of this year’s election. The film features never before seen footage shot on the streets of Tehran.

“Wolf,” Zhuangzhuang Tian’s follow-up to 2006’s “The Go Master,” stars Maggie Q in the story of a disillusioned general of an ancient Chinese army regiment who finds himself stranded in a village populated by a strange clan with mystical connections to wolves.

Both films are looking for North American distribution.
