In Love With the Stars showcases three Film Reference Library archival collections — the TIFF Photography Archive, The Jack Pashkovsky Collection, and The Edith Nadajewski Scrapbook Collection — whose creators display a truly reverential relationship to their screen idols, and whose work blurs the line between private and public. Never intending to share their movie-star obsession with a wider audience, these creators sought to remain in the background while shining a light on the stars. But in the process, they created wonderfully imaginative work that illuminates their own selves as well.
