Ken Taylor sheltered six American diplomats during "the Canadian Caper."

Film fest is raising curtain on Season 11 with double feature

On Monday, Jan. 6, the Ancaster Film Festival screens Nicole Holofcener’s Enough Said starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus and James Gandolfini at 1 p.m.  Doors open at 12:15 p.m.

The Canadian documentary Our Man in Tehran follows at 4 and 7:15 p.m. Doors open at 3:15 and 6:15 p.m. respectively.  Directors Larry Weinstein and Drew Taylor will be on hand to introduce and do a question-and-answer for the two screenings, which take place at Ancaster Silver City.

Non-members pay $9 at the matinees and $10 at the evening screening. All proceeds will go to the Hamilton Out of the Cold program.

In Enough Said, a divorced and single parent, Eva (Julia Louis Dreyfus) spends her days enjoying work as a masseuse but dreading her daughter’s impending departure for college. She meets Albert (James Gandolfini), who is also facing an empty nest.  As their romance blossoms, complications arise.

The main subject of Our Man in Tehran is Ken Taylor, Canada’s former ambassador to Iran, who personally sheltered six American diplomats in the operation that became known as “the Canadian Caper.” The gripping, informative documentary chronicles the details that not many are aware of.

The Ancaster Film Fest is a member of the Toronto International Film Festival’s film circuit, which is dedicated to bringing the best international and Canadian films to communities across the country.
