Macedonians at Toronto Film Festival

By David Edenden: Two Macedonian films are going to be shown at the Toronto International Film Festival
SHADOWS Milcho Manchevski,
Republic of Macedonia/Germany/Italy/Bulgaria/Spain

Shadows: Although hospital physician Lucky seems to have it all - a beautiful wife, lovely child, good job - he is always struggling to live up to the expectations of others while living in the shadow of his hotshot physician mother. But after he is involved in a car crash and mysteriously saved from certain death, Lucky's life dramatically begins to change.

Teona Strugar Mitevska,
Republic of Macedonia

A social drama, I AM FROM TITOV VELES is the story of three sisters living in Veles, a small industrial town in Macedonia, searching for a better life. With painful honesty, writer/director Teona Strugar Mitevska follows the sisters as they struggle with themselves, their dissolving family and difficult relationships.
