As David Miller heads for a “well, there’s no one else to vote for” style victory for his second term as mayor of Toronto, it’s easy to forget that only three years ago he was a virtual unknown who surprised everyone by becoming mayor of Canada’s largest city. During that campaign, filmmaker Andrew Munger had unprecedented access to the candidate, his family and campaign team.
Mungers’ film Campaign: The Making of a Candidate is the behind the scenes story of David Miller’s unlikely victory. Come attend a rare screening tonight and get some insight into the political process.
The screening will be followed by a discussion of the upcoming Toronto mayoralty race featuring urban affairs writers Peter Kuitenbrouwer (The National Post) and John Lorinc (Toronto Life, Spacing Votes).
This is a fundraising event for Regent Park Focus — Catch da Flava media project. Admission is PWYC, suggested donation of $10.00.
Tonight! 7:00PM, Tuesday, November 7, 2006
The National Film Board Theatre. 150 John Street at Richmond.
