"Well, sometimes it's just like, 'fuck it,' you know?"

Jan 2, 2018

During this past Festival, director Christopher Nolan joined Cameron Bailey on stage at Ontario Place's historic Cinesphere for a Q&A after a screening of his latest film, Dunkirk, in IMAX. In the tête-à-tête, Nolan discussed his approach to historical and emotional authenticity, avoiding CGI, shooting on the actual location where the events took place, his use 65mm IMAX cameras, and using cinema as a means to explore our perception of time.

See Dunkirk the way Christopher Nolan meant you to see it: on film. Dunkirk returns to TIFF this January 3, 6, and 7 in TIFF Bell Lightbox's Cinema 1 — the best screen in Toronto — as part of the Magnificent 70mm programme! Tickets are available now.
