Special event : Post-screening discussion with Mario Cyr, the renowned Qubec artist, explorer, cameraman, photographer and diver, on Friday, November 8 at 7:00 p.m.

The Arctic is a majestic world. A legendary blanket of ice shelters its rich wildlife, from bowhead whales and polar bears to tiny plankton and algae. At the end of each spring, after long months of darkness, the sun shines for 24 hours a day and all living species gather at the floe edge — where ice meets open ocean —for a feeding frenzy.

But global warming is melting the perennial polar ice at an alarming rate and Canadian extreme divers and cinematographers, Jill Heinerth and Mario Cyr, are concerned. In 2018, they combined their formidable skills to investigate how Arctic wildlife is adjusting to changes in their habitat. Things do not go as expected, and as they search for animals and travel over the ice, they experience first-hand the repercussions of rapid climate change. The documentary UNDER THIN ICE tells the story of this extraordinary expedition. Viewers will travel on ice floes with Jill and Mario to Tallurutiup Imanga, also known as Lancaster Sound in Nunavut, Canada, where they will dive with belugas and narwhals in the open Arctic Ocean. They will follow them to Greenland’s Disko Bay to explore the underside of icebergs and discover the luminescent world of algae. Back to Canada in the Naujaat region, they will swim with walruses and polar bears, the supreme predators of the Arctic. Filmed in stunning 4K, Under Thin Ice brings viewers into an awe-inspiring underwater world threatened by melting ice and rapid climate change.

Two girls grow up as best friends in an Innu community. While Mikuan has a loving family, Shaniss is picking up the pieces of her shattered childhood. As children, they promised each other to stick together no matter what. But as they’re about to turn 17, their friendship is shaken when Mikuan falls for a white boy, and starts dreaming of leaving the reserve that’s now too small for her dreams.

ROBIN COSTE LEWIS (b.1964) is the poet laureate of Los Angeles. Her poetry debut, Voyage of the Sable Venus (Knopf, 2015) was honoured with the 2015 National Book Award for Poetry. Lewis has published her work widely in various journals and anthologies, including The New Yorker, The Paris Review, and The New York Times, among others. Currently, she is a Writer-in-Residence at the University of Southern California.

Duration : 3h 40
 

Presented in original italian version with French subtitles.

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

Rameau’s INDES GALANTES bu Opéra national de Paris.

The flagship work of the Age of Enlightenment, Les Indes galantes is like a dazzling entertainment. But Rameau’s first opera-ballet also testifies to the European’s ambiguous view of the Other – Turkish, Inca, Persian, Sauvage… In 2017, director Clément Cogitore signed an explosive and very noticed film, adapting an excerpt from the Indes galantes with the competition of krump dancers. With the choreographer Bintou Dembélé, he takes this machine to enchant in its entirety to re-register in an urban and political space while questioning the borders.

 

Clément Cogitore and Bintou Dembélé redirect the wondering, benevolent but misguided gaze of Rameau and the Enlightenment on the Other, making this opera-ballet a dream of a powerful political and humanist charge that questions borders.
