Toronto Film Fest to screen cat torture documentary
- 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."
