Directed and edited by Aquib Azim, the short videos show the Canadian film critic Richard Crouse introducing some of the feature films of the upcoming Brazil Film Fest (Oct 18-21 at The Royal). The idea behind the videos is a different way to introduce the films for the Canadian audience, without depending on the trailers, since some of them have no subtitles in English. Good for us, since it is always great to watch Richard talking about movies!
