THE OTHER SIDE OF PORCUPINE LAKE - A feature length documentary about Ingrid Veninger's DIY feature film PORCUPINE LAKE (2017) seems like a very odd idea Julian Papas' insider document of the pre-production, filming and post-production of PORCUPINE LAKE which premiered at TIFF 2017. What makes this required viewing for film fans and students is that we finally get to see Canadian indie legend Ingrid Veninger's process which is very hard-working but collaborative. As well we also witness the actresses themselves connecting along with Ingrid's daughter Hallie, also an actress, here in doing wardrobe selections and lovingly help her mom out in any way possible. I loved that at many points in the documentary we are simply observing the art being born and the absolute passion that went behind it; so much so that you don't even have to watch PORCUPINE LAKE to enjoy it (although I would recommend it). If you are a fan of Ingrid's work, as I am, this is a fascinating look into a truly inspiring individual.
