Inuit drama THE JOURNALS OF KNUD RASMUSSEN opened the Toronto Film Festival in Ontario, Canada yesterday (07SEP06). Canadian directors Zacharias Kunuk and Norman Cohn's film centres on Danish scientists studying Inuit shaman in the 1920s and exposes the clash of cultures. Following the movie's world premiere, Cohn said, "We are artists. We are not social workers. We are political artists but we are not politicians. We make things visible. Other people fix them. "Showing this movie here is so important because aboriginal people are speaking directly to the privileged, richest and most powerful in this country tonight." British TV network Channel 4 also premiered their controversial drama DEATH OF A PRESIDENT at the festival, about the fictional assassination of US President George W Bush. A total of 352 films from 62 countries will be on show at the festival, which ends on 16 September (06).
