TIFF Cinematheque Presents Fathers and Daughters: The Films of Mia Hansen-Løve
As a sidebar to the on-going Summer in France programme, TIFF will be hosting a complete three-day retrospective on one of France’s rising young talents in Fathers and Daughters: The Films of Mia Hansen-Løve, the first of its kind in North America.
