Un Certain Regard Award at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival.

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. With their destinies now at odds, the sisters do everything in their power to find each other. Adapting Martha Batalha’s eponymous novel with great sensitivity and impressive narrative force, Karim Aïnouz (Madame Satã) scooped the Un Certain Regard prize at this year’s Cannes. A wrenching epic about two women, elevated by stunning performances from its two leads, Carol Duarte and Julia Stockler, and borne by the power of an unbreakable bond.

14 years old and up

Late 1990s. The 1000 year-old city of Kabul, capital of Afghanistan, lies in smoking ruins, occupied by the Taliban. Fear grips the residents as armed zealots roam – the University is destroyed, women are violated in the street, public executions precede soccer matches in the stadium and atrocities rule. In the midst of this daily violence and misery where joy and laughter are suspect, Mohsen and Zunaira, married and in love, dream of freedom. But their life is about to change forever… First-time co-directors Zabou Breitman and Eléa Gobbé-Mévellec succeed in adapting Yasmina Khadra’s excellent best-selling novel into a dazzling and prize-winning animation feature film.

Golde Bear at Berlinale 2019.

The latest from Nadav Lapid (The Kindergarten Teacher) features a dynamic lead performance from newcomer Tom Mercier, whose feral intensity practically bursts out of the frame. Mercier plays Yoav, a disaffected young Israeli who flees Tel Aviv for Paris to start a new life. Desperate to erase his origins, Yoav sees becoming French as his only hope for salvation. Step one is to replace his language. From now on, he will not utter a single word of Hebrew and his dictionary becomes his constant companion. His work at the Israeli embassy is a burden, but studying for his naturalization test also has its pitfalls. And the young French couple he befriends has some rather strange ideas about how to help him. Based on writer-director Nadav Lapid’s own experiences, Synonyms explores the challenges of putting down roots in a new place. Yoav’s attempts to find himself awaken past demons and open up an existential abyss in this tragicomic puzzle that wisely knows how to keep its secrets.

Lecture by Maxime Durand, Historian, Ubisoft, bachelor’s in History from Université de Montréal with the contribution of Perrine Poiron, doctoral candidate, Department of History, UQÀM / Université Paris-IV Sorbonne.

Universal and timeless, ancient Egypt holds an enduring fascination, and yet its mysteries remain inaccessible for many. Museums, researchers and teachers are working tirelessly to reveal it as it really was. Since February 2018, they have had an additional tool for popularizing its history: Assassin’s Creed: Origins Discovery Tour of Ancient Egypt, a virtual historical and educational platform. In this talk, Maxime Durand, historian in residence and content director at Ubisoft Montreal, will shed light on this remarkable tool.

Presented in original portugese version subtitled in French.

Un Certain Regard Award at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival.

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. With their destinies now at odds, the sisters do everything in their power to find each other. Adapting Martha Batalha’s eponymous novel with great sensitivity and impressive narrative force, Karim Aïnouz (Madame Satã) scooped the Un Certain Regard prize at this year’s Cannes. A wrenching epic about two women, elevated by stunning performances from its two leads, Carol Duarte and Julia Stockler, and borne by the power of an unbreakable bond.

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

Verdi’s IL TROVATORE by the Verona Arena Opera Festival.

The Verona Arena Opera Festival was created in 1913 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Verdi’s birth. Since then, it has continued the tradition of popular opera in a beautifully preserved Roman amphitheatre that can accommodate up to 20,000 spectators. Anna Netrebko and Yusif Eyvazov, a couple on stage and in the city, are the headliners of Franco Zeffirelli’s production at the 97th edition of the festival. The debut of the world’s most famous soprano on the stage of the world’s largest outdoor theatre is a highly anticipated event.

In a sumptuous oversize set typical of Zeffirelli style, the prima donna assoluta Anna Netrebko makes her debut, on the stage of the arena dedicated to the world’s most famous lyrical art, in the role of Leonora, a fundamental core of her glorious career.
