Life of Pi: Yann Martel on the red carpet
The story of a tiger, a boat and boy named Pi was an award-winning novel.
Now Yann Martel's Life of Pi is a movie in 3-D.
Academy-award winner Ang Lee directs what some thought to be an impossible story to bring to the screen.
The movie gets its Canadian debut at the Festival du Nouveau Cinéma in Montreal this afternoon at 3pm at the Scotiabank Theatre. (It opens in cinemas in November.)
Yann Martel, who actually wrote the original book in Montreal, joins Sonali Karnick on the phone from his home in Saskatoon.
