Discover the vitality of quebec and canadian cinema
All of these films ultimately deal with exile, whether internal or external, while paying close attention to the characters’ gestures, faces and less often, their words. A strange interplay between strength and fragility emerges.
Of all stripes... Featuring (successful) formal exercises and evocations (of all stripes), an impassioned anthology of films that constantly push the language of cinema and the limits of our perception based on material ranging from nature, film stock, the world and nightmares to Arrival of a Train at La Ciotat.
The films in this collection seem to create a troubling overlap of the scenery and the protagonists’ moods, as if the world aroundthem were contaminated or shaped by their desires. In these films, man does not simply make his mark on the landscape — there is a mutual attraction.
A collection of films — always arresting, often amusing, sometimes caustic and even fantastical — on the eternal theme of desire and its fallout. After years of self-flagellation, Quebec strikes back and will not be ignored!
