1919 to be a hot doc

Margaret MacMillan's landslide success of a few years ago, Paris 1919, about the great peace conference, has become a documentary film directed by the NFB's Paul Cowan (who got a lot of hate mail some years ago for "The Kid Who Couldn't Miss," his not-so-hagiographical documentary about Billy Bishop).

"Paris 1919," the film, will launch at the very terrific Hot Docs film festival in Toronto on May 1.

The Film Board Paris 1919 page, with clips and stills and much else, is here.
