Well GO USA and The Xtra Mile presents a fantastic opportunity to win run of engagement passes to see TIFF 2018 selection FREAKS!
Kept locked inside the house by her father, 7-year-old Chloe lives in fear and fascination of the outside world, where Abnormals create a constant threat – or so she believes. When a mysterious stranger offers her a glimpse of what’s really happening outside, Chloe soon finds that while the truth isn’t so simple, the danger is very real.
The film resonated with me on a personal level posing important philosophical and existential questions such as the importance of minority rights and diversity. It shines a light on the pathology of a dominant society which will go to extraordinary lengths to rid itself of difference evoking the horrors of Nazi Germany or perhaps, the policies of Trump America. It’s an intriguing film shining a light on the pathology of ideological thought that fails to consider humanity in all its diversity. It was a compelling film to watch and, I don’t think I’ll ever be able to look at an ice cream truck in the same way again. Do see it for you won’t be disappointed. – Stefan Chiarantano
