THE WIND: World Premiere Interviews Emma Tammi, Teresa Sutherland, Caitlin Gerard, Julia Goldani Telles

     Director Emma Tammi speaks to Robert Mitchell at the World Premiere of The Wind

The Wind was one of my favorite films to premiere at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival Midnight Madness programme. The film is takes place in the 1800s American frontier and is a haunting tale of solitude and madness that ultimately leads to horror. Director Emma Tammi masterfully combines all the elements of film making, sound design, cinematography, special effects that results in a pure cinematic experience. The Wind is rooted in a strong script by Teresa Sutherland. Caitlin Gerard delivers a strong and powerful performance as homesteader Elizabeth. I urge you to seek out this film which opens this weekend (April 5th, 2019) in theaters and video on demand. Here are my interviews from the world premiere.

GEORGE A. ROMERO - The Toronto World Premiere & Welcome Ceremony Videos

Robert Mitchell with George A. Romero at Mr. Romero's welcome ceremony as a Canadian citizen. September 12th, 2009. The inscription on the memento of the occasion was written by me and reads: "In recognition of the Canadian citizenship of George A. Romero , his status as a Torontonian and his efforts to bridge understanding between the living and undead through the cinematic arts September 12, 2009"

Toronto was Mr. Romero's home in his final years. It was in Toronto he would make his final films and they would also have there world premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival during Midnight Madness. Here is a collection of videos I made from the world premieres of Diary of the Dead, Survival of the Dead and the welcome ceremony in honor of Mr. Romero's Canadian citizenship.
