Atlantic Film Fest: Monday's Picks 

Support your local filmmakers, get Crackie and save the world.


Sadly, the work week may be on, but there's still lots of AFF fun. Here's where we are:

Wings of Desire (Dal Art Gallery, 5pm): Wim Wenders' beautiful film is an all-time classic, also inspiring one of the worst remakes ever, starring Nic Cage and Meg Ryan.

Atlantic Shorts (Park Lane 8, 7pm, 9:20pm): Stomp, clap and whistle for your favourite local filmmakers. As usual, there's an exciting collection of shorts showcasing local talent, including Heather Young and her award-winning short Dog Girl (7:20pm).

Crackie (Park Lane, 7:10pm): A stunning debut from Sherry White, featuring a breakout performance by Meghan Greeley. Read the story here.

Men for Sale (Park Lane 7, 9:25pm): Rodrigue Jean's Lost Song, about a woman's isolated struggle with post-partum, is one of the truly heartbreaking films I've seen in a long time. It won best Canadian picture, last year at TIFF. Jean returns with another dark topic, but this time it's a documentary. He followed 11 sex trade workers over a year.

8 (Oxford, 7pm): Imagine if filmmakers had world power. Eight directors, including Jane Campion and Wim Wenders, contribute pieces on "global aims to fix the world."

Broken Embraces (Oxford, 9:30pm): Filmmaking PB&J, Almodovar and Penelope Cruz.
