If the wistful adventures of Toy Story 3 don’t tickle your three-dimensional cinematic fancy, maybe watching the destruction of Toronto storefronts in 3-D will. Reg Hartt, Toronto filmmaker and basement cinema legend, used his new 3-D camera to put together 40 minutes of unedited footage of the aftermath of the G20 riots. The film, entitled Toronto Bleeds, has no score or audio to provide an ominous interpretation of the chaos. Hartt told the National Post he hopes the audience will react with the same anger he felt. “It will make sure it never happens again,” he said. The film is screening at 6 p.m. at the Cineforum (463 Bathurst Street) until July 8.
