Heaven Knows What (free sneak preview with BBQ pre-reception and filmmakers in person!)

The latest from acclaimed sibling directors Josh and Benny Safdie (Daddy Longlegs) blends fiction, formalism and raw documentary as it follows a young heroin addict who finds mad love in the streets of New York. Joshua and Benny Safdie have made their most accomplished and fearless film yet with this fierce fusion of fiction and documentary realism blending real actors with fugitives, drug dealers, and street legends as it chronicles a young addict feeding her addictions and finding love on the sidewalks of Manhattan. Based on the experiences of Arielle Holmes — a homeless teenager with a ferocious Jersey accent — the film stars Holmes as Harley, a fictionalized version of herself: a heroin-hooked panhandler unable to get either the junk or her wicked boyfriend Ilya (wan Hollywood star Caleb Landry Jones, startlingly unrecognizable) out of her system. Still, she is driven by a strange (and surely self-destructive) desire for beauty, the explosive moments of rapture that puncture the drabness of her existence. —Toronto International Film Festival
