The Toronto International Film Festival just came to a close, but you can create your own film festival at home with these film festival favorites on SnagFilms.
The Weather Underground: Watch this Chicago Underground Film Festival phenom centered on the late 60s student radicals The Weathermen. Interweaving archival footage with contemporary interviews, the film paints a compelling portrait of revolutionary times with unexpected, striking connections to today’s world.
Primer: A Grand Jury award winner at Sundance, this cult classic blends sci-fi and mystery as two brilliant engineers travel back in time. As noted by Esquire, “anybody who claims he fully understands what’s going on in Primer after seeing it just once is either a savant or a liar.” Test yourself.
Sita Sings the Blues: A kaleidoscopic, whimsical animated film by Nina Paley, Sita Sings the Blues is a semi-autobiographical story of a young female cartoonist who moves to India with her husband and becomes fascinated by the “Ramayana” folk tale. Heralded at the Tribeca and Berlin film festivals, it weaves together the lives of women separated by centuries but bound by parallel experience.
