My son Nathaniel Zavitz and I are working on a script for a movie titled Lost Rivers of Toronto. It is a triple love story, a comedy, and an exploration of the things about Toronto we love the most. I'll post updates about the development of this film as they happen. It is currently being considered by a producer. Storytelling and film share one artistic imperative: suspense. Natty and I are both passionate about the principle, "Never play an ace when a two will do." As a kid he once commented (about a movie called Finding Forrester), "They left too little unknown." This is still the best criticism I've ever heard, of film, storytelling, or any other artform. Stay tuned to more news about Lost Rivers!
