A book launch and TIFF screening will celebrate Canadian filmmaker Allan King’s 1969 documentary A Married Couple. King’s doc follows the collapse of a middle-class marriage and a restored version will be shown at the film fest. In conjunction, a book called Allan King’s A Married Couple by Zoë Druick will have its launch on September 8. Druick’s book uses a scene-by-scene synopsis and analysis to trace the film’s influence on the documentary genre and Canadian filmmaking. A Married Couple screens at TIFF in the Canadian Open Vault program of the festival, on September 10.
