Videodrome Stomach-Vagina Prop and More at the David Cronenberg Exhibit

The Fly pod, eXistenZ bio-ports and Naked Launch junk creatures, holy shit! Tomorrow, at the the Toronto Film Festival’s Lightbox, more than forty years of director David Cronenberg’s artifacts go on display.

David Cronenberg: Evolution, parallels David Cronenberg’s evolution as a filmmaker with his longstanding fascination with the possibilities and perils of human evolution itself… Divided into three major sections that provide a loosely chronological overview of Cronenberg’s career, the exhibition traces the development of the director’s evolutionary themes across his filmography through more than sixty original artifacts, visionary designs, and rare and unseen footage.

And not to mention the audience comment card for Videodrome that just says “SUCKS!!!” Going to have to take a train up to Canada it seems. Always wanted to check out those medical prosthetics/fetish wear from Crash for totally legit and non-perverted journalism reasons. “David Cronenberg: Evolution,” Nov 1 – Jan 9, HSBC Gallery at TIFF Bell Lightbox, Toronto, Canada (Photos: Gason Gorber/@Filmfest_CA via TwitchFilm)
