Video: Véréna Paravel & Lucien Castaing-Taylor’s Caniba – 2017 TIFF Post Screening Q&A

Just prior to heading over to NYFF and having just showed at the Venice Film Festival, via Andréa Picard’s shrewd programming, the Wavelengths programme featured this disturbing, at times repulsive, and surprisingly probing Dead Ringers-esque portrait from Leviathan pairing of Véréna Paravel and Lucien Castaing-Taylor. Here is the post screening Q&A showing at the Jackman Hall of Caniba where the duo detailed how they found and displayed their subject.
