TIFF ’08: Director vs Audience Member in ‘Martyrs’ Q+A

Last was the premiere of the French horror film Martyrs (review) at the Midnight Madness portion of the Toronto International Film Festival. After the film ended, most of the sold out crowd stayed for a special Q+A session with Director Pascal Laugier where things took an interesting turn. One of the audience members called out Laugier and dissed his film. What resulted? A good old fashioned butt-whooping. Inside you’ll find the full question and answers session (spoilers follow), along with a fun little behind-the-scenes video starring the ladies of MARTYRS, Morjana Alaoui and Mylene Jampanoi. If you want to watch the confrontation, go straight to part 3.
