Monday December 9 2019 - 16:30
Meeting point : Cinéma du Musée - 1379-A Sherbrooke Street West
Duration : 1h 55
 

Presented in original multilingual version subtitled in English.

“There are three words that are important to me: inspiration, creation, and sharing.” So begins the late Agnès Varda in what would be the final film in her oeuvre of over 50 documentaries, fictions, and shorts, made over the course of 64 years. Varda by Agnès — a title that riffs on her 1988 cine-portrait of Jane Birkin, Jane B. par Agnès V. — forms its core out of lectures the iconic French New Wave director gave in her later years. But, in pure Varda fashion, the film is punctuated by humour as she dives into unexpected realms, tracing her career and life, and the ways they intertwined.

 

Though 90 at the time of filming, Varda still emanates her characteristic vibrant energy. She offers a wide-ranging journey through her world: her filming process, her feminism, her fine-art photography, her long-time relationship with director Jacques Demy. There are signature flourishes of animation, and formal detours into the dreams that form the integral basis of her reality.

Varda died only a month after Varda by Agnès premiered at Berlin, and with this in mind, it’s hard not to see it as a eulogy. Yet, like all of Varda’s work, it brims with life. And its takeaway is not a past-tense legacy, but a sense of how Varda lived through her films, of what she brought to the art form, and — the greatest gift — of finding the extraordinary in the ordinary. “Nothing is banal if you film people with empathy and love,” Varda once said. This is the inspiration she has left us with.

Meeting point : Cinéma du Musée - 1379-A Sherbrooke Street West
Duration : 1h 53
 

Presented in original Spanish version subtitled in English.

Pain and Glory tells of a series of reencounters experienced by Salvador Mallo, a film director in his physical decline. Some of them in the flesh, others remembered: his childhood in the 60s, when he emigrated with his parents to a village in Valencia in search of prosperity, the first desire, his first adult love in the Madrid of the 80s, the pain of the breakup of that love while it was still alive and intense, writing as the only therapy to forget the unforgettable, the early discovery of cinema, and the void, the infinite void that creates the incapacity to keep on making films. Pain and Glory talks about creation, about the difficulty of separating it from one’s own life and about the passions that give it meaning and hope. In recovering his past, Salvador finds the urgent need to recount it, and in that need he also finds his salvation.

MONOS, Alejandro Landes’ third feature, is a survivalist saga set on a remote mountain in Latin America. The film tracks a young group of soldiers and rebels — bearing names like Rambo, Smurf, Bigfoot, Wolf and Boom-Boom — who keep watch over an American hostage, Doctora (Julianne Nicholson). The teenage commandos perform military training exercises by day and indulge in youthful hedonism by night, an unconventional family bound together under a shadowy force know only as The Organization. After an ambush drives the squadron into the jungle, both the mission and the intricate bonds between the group begin to disintegrate. Order descends into chaos and within MONOS the strong begin to prey on the weak in this vivid, cautionary fever-dream.

THE ARTS OF ONE WORLD

Lecture by Danielle Aimée Miles, graduate of Concordia University.

This presentation will explore the problematic relationship Survey Museums have to discourses of Western supremacy through the presentation of Mediterranean Archaeological collections as idealizations of a Western past. This lecture will examine art historical and archaeological discourses surrounding Mediterranean archaeology, the impact of its presentation as art or artifact, as well as the possibility of a critical curatorial methodology for the display of Mediterranean archaeology leaning heavily on Critical Museological theory as well as Institutional Critique artistic practice.

Climate change art has been growing in significance as contemporary artists seek to generate new ways of seeing and engaging with the environmental crisis facing the Earth. Developed out of an art history graduate seminar on international art exhibitions at Concordia University, this symposium presents six curatorial propositions that address the question: How do we curate exhibitions of contemporary art addressing critical aspects of climate change in a way that is also mindful of being located on unceded Indigenous lands and waters?”

In recovering his past, Salvador finds the urgent need to recount it, and in that need he also finds his salvation.

The orchestra then went on the road to perform the unique work in Quebec’s Far North, stopping in Kuujjuaq, Salluit, Kuujjuarapik, Oujé-Bougoumou, Mashteuiatsh and Maliotenam. Far more than just a concert film, Chaakapesh puts the audience front row centre as artists and communities come together in a remarkable cultural space.

Friday December 13 2019 - 16:30
Meeting point : Cinéma du Musée - 1379-A Sherbrooke Street West
Duration : 1h 55
 

Presented in original multilingual version subtitled in English.

“There are three words that are important to me: inspiration, creation, and sharing.” So begins the late Agnès Varda in what would be the final film in her oeuvre of over 50 documentaries, fictions, and shorts, made over the course of 64 years. Varda by Agnès — a title that riffs on her 1988 cine-portrait of Jane Birkin, Jane B. par Agnès V. — forms its core out of lectures the iconic French New Wave director gave in her later years. But, in pure Varda fashion, the film is punctuated by humour as she dives into unexpected realms, tracing her career and life, and the ways they intertwined.

 

Though 90 at the time of filming, Varda still emanates her characteristic vibrant energy. She offers a wide-ranging journey through her world: her filming process, her feminism, her fine-art photography, her long-time relationship with director Jacques Demy. There are signature flourishes of animation, and formal detours into the dreams that form the integral basis of her reality.

Varda died only a month after Varda by Agnès premiered at Berlin, and with this in mind, it’s hard not to see it as a eulogy. Yet, like all of Varda’s work, it brims with life. And its takeaway is not a past-tense legacy, but a sense of how Varda lived through her films, of what she brought to the art form, and — the greatest gift — of finding the extraordinary in the ordinary. “Nothing is banal if you film people with empathy and love,” Varda once said. This is the inspiration she has left us with.

Pain and Glory tells of a series of reencounters experienced by Salvador Mallo, a film director in his physical decline. Some of them in the flesh, others remembered: his childhood in the 60s, when he emigrated with his parents to a village in Valencia in search of prosperity, the first desire, his first adult love in the Madrid of the 80s, the pain of the breakup of that love while it was still alive and intense, writing as the only therapy to forget the unforgettable, the early discovery of cinema, and the void, the infinite void that creates the incapacity to keep on making films. Pain and Glory talks about creation, about the difficulty of separating it from one’s own life and about the passions that give it meaning and hope. In recovering his past, Salvador finds the urgent need to recount it, and in that need he also finds his salvation.

Throughout the ages, people have always celebrated and recognized a greater power, one that manifests itself in various sacred, spiritual, or cosmic forms. During this concert, musical praises and prayers will be addressed to the cradle of humanity, our-mother-the-sea, by drawing from one of the 13th century’s musical jewels, the manuscripts known as the Cantigas de Santa Maria. These songs bear witness to a time when sages, poets, musicians, dancers, scribes, and illuminators, whether Christian, Muslim, or Jewish, served art in an ecumenical spirit.

In collaboration with the crystalline-timbred vocalist Savina Yannatou, Constantinople presents Praises to the Sea, a ceremonial concert in five parts, in the spirit of a mystical quest.

Vives’s DOÑA FRANCISQUITA by the Teatre del Liceu.

One of the famous Zarzuelas by Amadeo Vives, composer from Collbató, near Barcelona, returns to the Gran Teatro del Liceu in a production by Lluís Pasqual, who reworked the spoken texts to offer a modern vision of this masterpiece of major work. He also arranged the loving relations of Fernando, Francisquita, Don Matías and Aurora «la Beltrana» in three different eras, in sets designed by Alejandro Andújar. The piece was co-produced by the Liceu and the Teatro de la Zarzuela in Madrid. This is a new opportunity to discover the Spanish operetta, performed by a team of artists simply extraordinary.

Immensely popular the day after its creation, Doña Francisquita is still one of the most played lyrical works in Spain. Nine years after the version of Luis Olmos, it is to the great Lluís Pasqual that the Liceu entrusts the proofreading of this zarzuela’s masterpiece.

In fall 2018, the Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal created the chamber opera Chaakapesh, a lighthearted story of the hero who founded the Innu people sung in three languages (Innu, Cree and Inuktitut) by Florent Vollant, Ernest Webb and Akinisie Sivuarapik. The orchestra then went on the road to perform the unique work in Quebec’s Far North, stopping in Kuujjuaq, Salluit, Kuujjuarapik, Oujé-Bougoumou, Mashteuiatsh and Maliotenam. Far more than just a concert film, Chaakapesh puts the audience front row centre as artists and communities come together in a remarkable cultural space. Poignant testimonials, important discussions and Maestro Nagano as we’ve never seen him before. – FNC 2019

“There are three words that are important to me: inspiration, creation, and sharing.” So begins the late Agnès Varda in what would be the final film in her oeuvre of over 50 documentaries, fictions, and shorts, made over the course of 64 years. Varda by Agnès — a title that riffs on her 1988 cine-portrait of Jane Birkin, Jane B. par Agnès V. — forms its core out of lectures the iconic French New Wave director gave in her later years. But, in pure Varda fashion, the film is punctuated by humour as she dives into unexpected realms, tracing her career and life, and the ways they intertwined.

 

Though 90 at the time of filming, Varda still emanates her characteristic vibrant energy. She offers a wide-ranging journey through her world: her filming process, her feminism, her fine-art photography, her long-time relationship with director Jacques Demy. There are signature flourishes of animation, and formal detours into the dreams that form the integral basis of her reality.

Varda died only a month after Varda by Agnès premiered at Berlin, and with this in mind, it’s hard not to see it as a eulogy. Yet, like all of Varda’s work, it brims with life. And its takeaway is not a past-tense legacy, but a sense of how Varda lived through her films, of what she brought to the art form, and — the greatest gift — of finding the extraordinary in the ordinary. “Nothing is banal if you film people with empathy and love,” Varda once said. This is the inspiration she has left us with.
