TORONTO EVENT: ROADSWORTH: CROSSING THE LINE

This week! On Wednesday August 10th at 4pm NFB Mediatheque in Toronto will have a FREE viewing of Peter Gibson's (Alias Roadsworth) 73 minute video "Crossing the line".

For those of you who are unfamiliar with NFB Mediatheque it is a centre for media literacy for adults and children, as well as where NFB Films are showcased for public viewings. Located in the entertainment district of Toronto, Ontario 150 John St (at Richmond St. W).

Filmmaker Alan Kohl provides a portrait of an artist who provokes debate about the significance of art in urban spaces.

"Crossing the Line details the artist's prosecution at home and his travels abroad to France, London and Amsterdam, as he imprints himself legitimately (and illegitimately) on foreign streets. The film reflects Roadsworth's personal struggle to defend his work, define himself as an artist and address difficult questions about art and freedom of expression".
