Before the official presentation at TIFF, on Fri,. Sept. 8 at 7 pm., in partnership with TIFF, the Canadian Opera Company presents an “avant-première” screening of Atom Egoyan’s Seven Veils at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts.

“Bequeathed a job remounting a Canadian Opera Company production of Salome after the death of its revered creator, her mentor, a young director (Amanda Seyfried) is forced to re-examine her tangled personal history with the project, the deceased man, and her own family,” the synopsis by Norm Wilner reads, adding, “This project lets Egoyan indulge his long-time love of opera, incorporating this year’s COC production of Salome, which he directed, into the film, and casting stars Kupfer-Radecky and Ambur Braid as fictional performers. And his reunion with Seyfried — who played the eponymous role in his drama Chloe (TIFF ’09) — lets the star demonstrate a range she rarely gets the chance to explore.”
