Presented in original multilingual version with French subtitles.

Filmed in Yiddish, M is a journey to the heart of Bnei Brak, world capital of the Haredim, the ultra-Orthodox Jews, “God-fearing” in Hebrew. This is where Menahem Lang grew up. He was known for his kindness, his commitment to Talmud school and especially his golden voice, which made him a renowned performer of liturgical chants. At the age of twenty, however, he broke with this pious life and moves to Tel Aviv, for the child with the bright smile was hiding a secret: for years, he was raped by members of the community that worshipped him. Menahem succeeds in opening the door to this forbidden world. This return to the scene of the crime is also a return to the places he loved, a path of initiation sprinkled with incredible encounters, recovered rituals, a reconciliation. As though drawn towards a magnet, those who experienced the same ordeal as him reveal themselves and dare to speak, driving away the haunting of the “galgal”, the vicious circle that has transformed victims of rape into rapists since the dawn of time.

Presented in original multilingual version with English subtitles.

In August 2013, an ancient statue of Apollo was found in the Mediterranean, off the coast of Gaza. A few days later, the treasure disappeared. As filmmaker Nicolas Wadimoff combs the streets of Gaza and Jerusalem, he and his attentive camera take on a detective’s role. Examining faces and recording contradictory accounts, the investigation reveals not only each person’s ambitions and beliefs, but the complexities of a delicate region whose tensions seem to be laid bare by the archaeological incident. Whether it’s a hoax or a national treasure, the Apollo of Gaza gives the filmmaker a starting point for a fascinating meditation on the importance of cultural heritage and its role in a nation’s affirmation – or its negation.

Carte Blanche to Thierry Mugler
Delve into the cinematic imagination of this couture giant through a selection of 12 films that echo his creations. From Metropolis to Microcosmos, it’s Mugler’s world on the big screen!

United States, Billy Wilder, 1948, 116 min – OVE
* Two Oscar nominations, 1949
 
The day after the war ends, Phoebe Frost, the head of an American congressional committee, is sent to Berlin to ascertain the morale of the troops occupying the ruined city. To her horror, she discovers the soldiers in a state of moral depravity, engaging in black market activity and relations with young German women. A femme fatale cabaret singer (Marlene Dietrich) suspected of being a former Nazi, is even being protected by an American officer. To assist her in her investigation, Phoebe enlists the help of Captain Pringle, unaware that he is in fact the officer in question. To avoid trouble, the captain pretends to fall in love with the young woman.

This dark comedy plunges us in the chaos of post-war Berlin, where soldiers make a mockery of American morality.

Every month, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts invites people aged 65 and over to enjoy a day of art and yoga designed especially for them, in addition to free access to its encyclopaedic collections. Yoga helps us to get in touch with our inner selves and replenish our inner light. Combined with art, it serves the Museum’s mission to cultivate well-being. 

In a convivial atmosphere, participants will occupy the Museum, taking part in a gentle yoga practice, discussing a work in the collection and enjoying this uniquely creative exploration. A stimulating experience that will open your horizons, body and soul!

Participants will be experimenting a traditionnal ink and water painting technique inspired by the theme and the Museum’s collection.

Passes are distributed from 10 a.m. on the day of the activity, at the Museum ticket counter. All materials required for the activity will be provided but the participants who wish to use their own yoga mat are welcome to bring it.

Filmed in Yiddish, M is a journey to the heart of Bnei Brak, world capital of the Haredim, the ultra-Orthodox Jews, “God-fearing” in Hebrew. This is where Menahem Lang grew up. He was known for his kindness, his commitment to Talmud school and especially his golden voice, which made him a renowned performer of liturgical chants. At the age of twenty, however, he broke with this pious life and moves to Tel Aviv, for the child with the bright smile was hiding a secret: for years, he was raped by members of the community that worshipped him. Menahem succeeds in opening the door to this forbidden world. This return to the scene of the crime is also a return to the places he loved, a path of initiation sprinkled with incredible encounters, recovered rituals, a reconciliation. As though drawn towards a magnet, those who experienced the same ordeal as him reveal themselves and dare to speak, driving away the haunting of the “galgal”, the vicious circle that has transformed victims of rape into rapists since the dawn of time.
