THE MANY SAD FATES OF MR. TOLEDANO (26 min)
Director: Joshua Seftel
THE MANY SAD FATES OF MR. TOLEDANO dives into the charming but undeniably morbid world of Phil Toledano, a prominent New York photographer who spent years obsessively staging the ways he most feared his life might turn out. The result is not only an extraordinary set of photographs, but the winsome Op-Doc The Many Sad Fates of Mr. Toledano, directed by Josh Seftel. A chronicle of imagined disease, death, and downward spiral, the film is a warmly comic exploration of how to face your worst fears.
