TIFF 2011: Five Most Promising Documentaries #5 ‘The Tall Man’
Director Tony Krawitz first burst into the film festival scene with Jewboy which premiered in Un Certain Regard at the 2005 Cannes Film Festival and went on to screen at many other festivals around the world. He has recently completed his feature length documentary entitled The Tall Man, based the award-winning book by Chloe Hooper, telling the story of Cameron Doomadgee’s death in custody on Palm Island. The Tall Man and Snowtown join three other Australian feature films screening at Toronto – The Eye of the Storm, Burning Man and The Hunter, all of which look promising.
The Toronto International Film Festival runs from Sept. 8 to 18.
