Leave them Laughing!

So there is a wicked film screening at our festival this year and here is a bit of info about it!
Leave them Laughing!

A Music Comedy about Dying!

So exciting for John Zaritsky and Montana Berg!

Screening on Saturday March 5th, 2010
9:30 pm - 11:00 pm | FEATURE FILM | Leave Them Laughing (Canada, 2010), produced by Montana Berg, directed by John Zaritsky

Ninety minutes of songs about life and quips about death from the wheelchair of Carla Zilbersmith who vows to exit laughing. Once a nationally-known singer/comedienne, now fated by ALS, remarkable Carla leaves a teen-aged son, fans who adore her, and this 90-minute pre-mortem retrospective of a life lived fully but too fast.

John Zaritsky, Oscar-winning director of the film, will be on Shaw Urban Rush March 3rd. I definitely recommend tuning in!

Hey! Do you speak German? Good! You should check out this awesome article on http://ahorntv.com/ on February 14th, 2011. This is an article about Mass Abedis Berlin's interview with WIFF-Board member Alexandra Georgi and her conversation with Montana Berg regarding Leave them Laughing at the Women in Film festival in Vancouver!

I, unfortunately, do not speak the language, but I know in my heart that it is an excellent article!
