This week on End Credits, get ready for some childhood trauma! Not ours, of course, but the cinematic life based on the real-life family drama of a well-known and controversial Hollywood actor. Plus, we will have some doc talk with one of the people responsible for North America’s biggest documentary film festival!
This Wednesday, May 27, at 2 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Tim Phillips will discuss:
All Things Digital. It’s the end of the May, and in a typical year, the annual Hot Docs documentary film festival would be long since over, but in the age of COVID-19 it’s actually just getting starting. We will talk to Shane Smith, the director of programming at Hot Docs, about making changes to this year’s festival, and how the pandemic will change things forever moving forward.
REVIEW: Honey Boy (2019). The life of a child actor can be difficult, and it can be made even more so by a reckless parent. Just ask Shia LaBeouf, or, better still, watch the new movie he stars in and wrote about it. Honey Boy began as a therapeutic exercise for LaBeouf while in rehab, his life story and struggles told on celluloid with the author playing his own father warts and all. But is Honey Boy more than just good therapy for its wannabe auteur star?
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 2 pm.
