      Toronto Star;

      "Toronto International Film Festival organizers have no intention of
      pulling a controversial film from the 2004 program, despite the
      outcry from local animal-rights activists.

      "This is about freedom of expression of the filmmaker to make a
      intelligent, responsible film about a difficult subject," said
      festival programmer Sean Farnel of his decision to schedule
      Casuistry: The Art Of Killing A Cat. "That's what the festival is all
      about, setting the terms for debate, not stifling them."

      The 90-minute documentary examines the videotaped killing of a stray
      cat named Kensington at the hands of Jesse Power, Anthony Wennekers
      and Matt Kaczorowski in 2001."
