While the Toronto International Film Festival will be presenting many prestige films that bring with them serious subject matter and sober drama, there will be plenty for those cinephiles looking for someting a bit more irreverent. And no one embodies that quality and spirit quite like legendary comedy troupe Monty Python. Making its world premiere at TIFF is "A Liar’s Autobiography – The Untrue Story Of Monty Python’s Graham Chapman" which pays tribute to the group's late member in an entirely fitting and outlandish fashion.

While the Toronto International Film Festival will be presenting many prestige films that bring with them serious subject matter and sober drama, there will be plenty for those cinephiles looking for someting a bit more irreverent. And no one embodies that quality and spirit quite like legendary comedy troupe Monty Python. Making its world premiere at TIFF is "A Liar’s Autobiography – The Untrue Story Of Monty Python’s Graham Chapman" which pays tribute to the group's late member in an entirely fitting and outlandish fashion.

Before he passed away in 1989, Chapman recorded himself reading from his book, "A Liar's Autobiography," which provided fans and followers with his own unique look on his own life. And now, those tapes have been used as the foundation for this documentary, which animates his greatly exaggerated life story with his former comedy partners John Cleese, Michael Palin, Terry Jones and Terry Gilliam all stopping by as themselves. And if that's not enough, this is in 3D as well.

This exclusive poster for the film is great tease for what audiences will be in for not only at TIFF, but when the film arrives later this year. "A Liar’s Autobiography – The Untrue Story Of Monty Python’s Graham Chapman" opens in October in the U.K. and in U.S. on November 2nd both in theaters and on EPIX. Check out the colorful one sheet and trailer below. The film premieres at TIFF on Saturday, September 8th.
