In the remote English-speaking village of Rivière-Saint-Paul, in Quebec’s Basse-Côte-Nord region, majestic landscapes are not enough to stop young people from moving away. Having grown up far from any city, Ethan, Brittney, Whitney and Patrick will soon leave their families behind, travelling thousands of kilometres to go to school and brighten their prospects. With the fishing industry in sharp decline, their elders are struggling to keep their traditional way of life alive. From breathtaking scenery to frank interviews and intimate observations, A Place of Tide and Time contrasts the visions of different generations, leading to a nuanced, unvarnished reflection on happiness and identity in a littleknown part of Quebec.

Algeria, the 1990s civil war, violent fundamentalists limit women’s freedom. Nedjma (charismatic Lyna Khoudri), in year 3 of French studies in college, is obsessed with fashion designing. Everyday life soon becomes more restrictive and even life-threatening, yet Nedjma and her best friend still find ways to sneak-out of their locked dormitory at night and sell handmade dresses in discotheque washrooms. Many of Nedjma’s contemporaries have emigrated, but Nedjma refuses to leave her beloved Algeria. Why not assert female pride and independence by organizing a fashion show, outfoxing the radicals?

Inspired by real events, first-time director-co-screenwriter Mounia Meddour spins a harrowing tale bursting with energy.

Rio de Janeiro in the 1950s. Eurídice and Guida have been raised in a conservative household. One night after a clandestine outing with her lover, Guida fails to return, leaving behind only a letter.

MUSIC IN ANCIENT EGYPT – MUSICAL LIFE, INSTRUMENTS AND ATTEMPTS AT RECONSTRUCTION
Wednesday February 12 2020 - 17:30
Duration : 1h 30

François Filiatrault, lecturer

Even if, for lack of notation, nothing remains of the music of ancient Egypt, we know of the instruments played by its inhabitants as well as their ritual and secular uses. The harps, wind, and percussion instruments found in tombs and seen in bas-reliefs, frescoes, and papyruses have been reconstructed; some specialists, well aware of their possibilities, have attempted to play music on them that is plausible in terms of ancient musical scales and consistent with written evidence. Furthermore, it has been possible to derive certain melodies from the gestures made by figures acting as conductors in some images…

This conference, accompanied by images and sound, will allow you to discover this enigmatic musical tradition.

Presented in original English version subtitled in French.

In the remote English-speaking village of Rivière-Saint-Paul, in Quebec’s Basse-Côte-Nord region, majestic landscapes are not enough to stop young people from moving away. Having grown up far from any city, Ethan, Brittney, Whitney and Patrick will soon leave their families behind, travelling thousands of kilometres to go to school and brighten their prospects. With the fishing industry in sharp decline, their elders are struggling to keep their traditional way of life alive. From breathtaking scenery to frank interviews and intimate observations, A Place of Tide and Time contrasts the visions of different generations, leading to a nuanced, unvarnished reflection on happiness and identity in a littleknown part of Quebec.

Algeria, the 1990s civil war, violent fundamentalists limit women’s freedom. Nedjma (charismatic Lyna Khoudri), in year 3 of French studies in college, is obsessed with fashion designing. Everyday life soon becomes more restrictive and even life-threatening, yet Nedjma and her best friend still find ways to sneak-out of their locked dormitory at night and sell handmade dresses in discotheque washrooms. Many of Nedjma’s contemporaries have emigrated, but Nedjma refuses to leave her beloved Algeria. Why not assert female pride and independence by organizing a fashion show, outfoxing the radicals?

Inspired by real events, first-time director-co-screenwriter Mounia Meddour spins a harrowing tale bursting with energy.

The greatest opera, theatre play and ballet classics from around the world on a cinema screen !

Tchaaikovsky’s SLEEPING BEAUTY by the Royal Ballet House.

The Sleeping Beauty holds a special place in The Royal Ballet’s repertory. It was the ballet with which the Company reopened the Royal Opera House in 1946 after World War II, its first production at its new home in Covent Garden. Margot Fonteyn danced the role of the beautiful Princess Aurora in the first performance, with Robert Helpmann as Prince Florimund. Sixty years later, in 2006, the original 1946 staging was revived by then Director of The Royal Ballet Monica Mason and Christopher Newton, returning Oliver Messel’s wonderful designs and glittering costumes to the stage.

Embellished, since its beginning, with superb sections choreographed by some of its most illustrious names, the first ballet presented by the company at Covent Garden is today a greater pleasure than the sum of Petipa, Tchaikovsky and Perrault’s works.

Algeria, the 1990s civil war, violent fundamentalists limit women’s freedom. Nedjma (charismatic Lyna Khoudri), in year 3 of French studies in college, is obsessed with fashion designing. Everyday life soon becomes more restrictive and even life-threatening, yet Nedjma and her best friend still find ways to sneak-out of their locked dormitory at night and sell handmade dresses in discotheque washrooms. Many of Nedjma’s contemporaries have emigrated, but Nedjma refuses to leave her beloved Algeria. Why not assert female pride and independence by organizing a fashion show, outfoxing the radicals?

Inspired by real events, first-time director-co-screenwriter Mounia Meddour spins a harrowing tale bursting with energy.

In the remote English-speaking village of Rivière-Saint-Paul, in Quebec’s Basse-Côte-Nord region, majestic landscapes are not enough to stop young people from moving away. Having grown up far from any city, Ethan, Brittney, Whitney and Patrick will soon leave their families behind, travelling thousands of kilometres to go to school and brighten their prospects. With the fishing industry in sharp decline, their elders are struggling to keep their traditional way of life alive. From breathtaking scenery to frank interviews and intimate observations, A Place of Tide and Time contrasts the visions of different generations, leading to a nuanced, unvarnished reflection on happiness and identity in a littleknown part of Quebec.
