Maria by Callas (STF)
Maria by Callas captures one of the great talents of the 20th century, combining beautifully restored archival footage with her own words. The Greek-American soprano rose to fame after World War II and became a star attraction in all the major opera houses. This film gives us fresh insights into her public and private lives. Maria Callas died at age 53 in 1977. Director Tom Volf represents a new generation that has become enamoured of her legacy. We hear Callas herself in interviews she gave during her lifetime, including a candid conversation with David Frost that was considered lost until Volf discovered that her butler had kept a copy. The film overturns Callas's reputation for tempestuousness by giving a different perspective on key events in her life, including an infamous performance cancellation in Rome and her falling out with the Metropolitan Opera leader Rudolf Bing. We learn of the control she felt from her mother and husband. She expresses regret over never becoming a mother, and she shares her feelings about her long love affair with Aristotle Onassis that lasted after his marriage to Jackie Kennedy. Callas's music is paramount in the film. We're treated to her signature arias from the operas Norma, La Traviata, Carmen, and Tosca. As Callas told Frost, "If someone really tries to listen to me, he will find all myself there." - TIFF 2018

Transit (STF)
German troops are fast approaching Paris. Georg, a German refugee, escapes to Marseille in the nick of time. In his luggage, he carries the documents of an author, Weidel, who has taken his own life in fear of his persecutors. Those documents include a manuscript, letters and visa assurance from the Mexican embassy.

In Marseille, only those who can prove they will leave, may remain. Visas for possible host countries, transit visas, and those scarce tickets for passage by ship are much needed. Georg has memorized Weidel's papers and assumes his identity. He delves into the quasi-existence of flight: refugee chatter in the corridors of a small hotel, the consulates, cafés and bars that line the harbor... He befriends Driss, the son of his comrade Heinz, who died on the run. Why move on at all? Are new beginnings possible elsewhere anyway?

Everything changes when Georg falls in love with the mysterious Marie. Is it devotion or calculation that has led her to share her life with a doctor, Richard, before journeying on in search of her husband? He's said to have surfaced in Marseille in possession of a Mexican visa for him and his wife.

TRANSIT an interview with Christian Petzold - "It’s a war story. A doomed love story. A ghost story. A parable. It’s dark, thrilling and strangely funny, in an absurdist, Kafka-esque way." - Globe Arts
