Duration : 2h
 

Presented in original arab version with French subtitles.

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, Nadine Labaki’s CAPERNAUM (“Chaos”) tells the story of Zain, a Lebanese boy who sues his parents for the “crime” of giving him life. CAPERNAUM follows Zain as he journeys from gutsy, streetwise child to hardened 12-yearold “adult”: fleeing his abusive, negligent parents, surviving through his wits on the streets, taking care of Ethiopian refugee Rahil and her baby son Yonas, being jailed for a violent crime, and finally, seeking justice in a courtroom.

Presented in original multilingual version with French or English subtitles.

Painter, writer, lover, playwright, traveller, and freethinker, Oskar Kokoschka is a rare being, remaining young, lucid and passionate throughout the many ordeals he experienced during his long life. Both classic and modern, his pictorial works of art remains avant-garde, and his topicality relates to us and warns us in a most ardent way: his high moral standards which are cruelly lacking in our times are an example that should be more widely known. The intimate life of Kokoschka mingles with the artistic and social life of that of a committed citizen. Added to his tireless life is the unremitting activity of the painter – thinker, each painting is a declaration of liberty and hope, a message of painful beauty and fraternity, a celebration of life.

Round Table: Vues transversales – A Panorama of the Latino-Québécois Arts Scene
Wednesday May 22 2019 - 17:30
Meeting point : Groups entrance – 2200 Crescent Street
Duration : 2h
In French

Guests: Hugh Hazelton, Rafael Zaldivar, Alejandro Saravia,  Claudia Bernal in conversation with Mariza Rosales Argonza

Vues transversales – Panorama de la scène artistique latino-québécoise is a work of contemporary transdisciplinary dynamics interpreting visions of diversity as intercultural processes within local specificities. Starting from experiences, this dialogue of cultures leads to an exercise of collective memory that reports on the recent history of Latino-Québécois society. The idea is to improve our understanding and interpretation of the artistic contribution of Latino-American immigrants and, as well, to contribute to the integration of new citizens in public life. The overall aim is an analysis of Québec as a crucible of a social environment which models the possibilities of both co-habitation and the transmission of cultural and artistic forms of expression. Supported by this environment, Latino-Americans are able, in turn, to further enrich Québec society.

Vues transversales : Panorama de la scène artistique latino-québécoise is a co-publication of CIDIHCA and the LatinArte Foundation, under the editorship of Mariza Rosales Argonza.

Painter, writer, lover, playwright, traveller, and freethinker, Oskar Kokoschka is a rare being, remaining young, lucid and passionate throughout the many ordeals he experienced during his long life. Both classic and modern, his pictorial works of art remains avant-garde, and his topicality relates to us and warns us in a most ardent way: his high moral standards which are cruelly lacking in our times are an example that should be more widely known. The intimate life of Kokoschka mingles with the artistic and social life of that of a committed citizen. Added to his tireless life is the unremitting activity of the painter – thinker, each painting is a declaration of liberty and hope, a message of painful beauty and fraternity, a celebration of life.

They worked with Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe and many more. They have decades of experience, and they were pioneers in their field. As women, their careers have not been without obstacles. You may not have heard of the architects Phyllis Lambert, Blanche Lemco van Ginkel, Cornelia Hahn Oberlander and Denise Scott Brown, but City Dreamers will help you get to know them. Through interviews and archival footage, Joseph Hillel takes us inside the fascinating world of these extraordinary creators. The film is an invitation to rethink the city with women who have devoted their lives to improving our environment, and who continue to share their knowledge and warn us about the pitfalls of urban design.
