The Dreams of Children

Today, the good fortune of discovering this screening at the Waldorf Hotel thirty minutes before it began. The Devil’s Toy is a 1966 tongue-in-cheek public service announcement on the danger of skateboards in the hands of Montreal youth. Well ahead of its time in style and poignancy.  Director Claude Jutra is the namesake of the Prix Jutra and ended his own life in 1986 by allegedly drowning himself in the St. Lawrence. You can watch it online here, but treat yourself to full screen if you get the chance.

I went to Thomas FX pyrotechnical in North Van to get some fuse for work today. The sister store sells commercial Halloween decorations. Serious decorations. Made you wonder how a fellow gets into such a business.
