From The Booth

Five years after we rocked Guelph moviegoers with Shawney Cohen's HotDocs Opening Night Gala film, The Manor, we have a new HotDocs (2018) hit from another Guelph native, Michael Del Monte. "A father, ex-marine and world-record powerlifter faces a singular feat of strength: transitioning from male to female. Facing professional and personal rejection, she searches for peace in her own skin in this clear-eyed portrait of the transition process". - HotDocs 2018. We have planned for Michael to attend and introduce these screenings with a Q&A session to follow. But as this paper goes to print, the film's US distributor is uncertain of their release date, which would take him to the US. We certainly hope that Michael is available to introduce his unique and compelling film. As the Oct 12 & 13 dates approach, we'll release updated reports at and the Bookshelf Cinema facebook page.
