New York: The Film Institute of Canada, the production company behind “Infinite Films” will be celebrating its centennial this year by launching a new production called “Infinity Film.”
The production, set to premiere this spring, is the first Canadian film to feature Scorsesian films and will be a follow-up to his 2012 film “Infinitude,” which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and earned him an Oscar nomination for Best Director.
The production will feature Scordans son, Jake Scorser, who plays the role of Martin Scordan.
The film, written and directed by Jake Scorda, will be released through the Centre for Film Studies, a new organization in Toronto which provides a platform for the work of emerging Canadian filmmakers.
Jake Scordas first film, “Infinitum,” was released in 2003 and won Scorsa an Oscar for Best Cinematography.
Jake, who also stars in the production, said he has been working on the project for several months and that he is thrilled to be partnering with the Centre.
“I’m incredibly proud of the film, I’m really thrilled that it’s coming to a Toronto audience, I hope that we get some great responses to it, and I hope it brings back some memories of the great times that Martin and I shared,” he said.
“Infinitus” is based on the true story of the late Martin Scords life and the events that led up to his death.
The story takes place in Scorseson’s home, where he lived until the age of 30 and was the father of three children.
He was also an avid outdoorsman and was known for his love of photography, painting and sculpture.
Scorsese and his brother, Ben, moved to Toronto in the late 1970s and the siblings spent most of their time in Scordarland, a town in the Ontario hills overlooking the Niagara River.
The brothers had a close bond and were known for going out together, often hiking together.
In 1987, the brothers moved to Scorseden, a small town on the Canadian border with the United States.
In the early 1990s, they moved to a bigger house in Toronto, where Jake and Ben were living.
“He was very generous, very kind,” said Jake Scortes.
“The whole thing was so close and so close together, and that was very important to him.”
“We were in a real, loving relationship, and it was very special to me.
We were like family,” said Ben Scordes.
The Scorsses moved back to Scordis house, and Jake was able to reconnect with his parents and friends.
“Martin and I just fell in love, and we were both really lucky,” he added.
“We had a wonderful time in Toronto and spent a lot of time together, so it was really nice to get to do something together, because we didn’t have the time to be apart.”
“Infinite” was the third Scorsetas film to premiere in Toronto.
“Infination” opened in 2003.
Jake and Ben Scorsen moved back home in 2008, but the brothers were not happy with the film’s reception.
“It was a bit of a disappointment,” Jake said.
“We wanted to be able to say that we made a good movie, and for the first time in our lives, we had an audience.”
“It took us a while to realize that it wasn’t our film, and then we had to figure out why,” he explained.
“If we had made it, it would have been great, but it’s not a film we would have wanted to make,” he continued.
“But we’ve always wanted to see what else might come out of that, so we just had to take it on board.”
Jake said he believes the film will resonate with audiences.
“They’re not just interested in ‘Who shot Martin Scorta?'” he said, referring to the director.
“They want to know, what happened to him, what his life was like, and they want to hear about what the world has gone through.”
“There’s not much we can say about the world except, we’re here,” he concluded.
