It was just over 2 years ago I was boasting here on SLAW about attending the 2007 Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).
Alas, I will not be attending TIFF 2009 this month but note there are a few law-related movies this year that sound interesting:
– Presumed Guilty (about injustices in the Mexican prison system)
– Google Baby (about issues surrounding surrogate pregnancies)
– Cleanflix (about movie copyright and censorship involving attempts by Mormons to edit racy Hollywood movies)
– Copyright Criminals: This is a Sampling Sport (about copyright issues involving music sampling [good Wikipedia article here on the legal issues involving sampling]). This one appears to have a free showing at 7 pm at the Yonge Dundas Square on Saturday, September 19th.
