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.

Post-screening discussion with Mario Cyr on Sunday, December 1rst, at 3:000 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.

No stranger to sitting down with some of the most controversial figures of our time, Errol Morris trains his lens on Stephen K. Bannon. In their wide ranging conversation spanning over 16 hours, Morris questions Bannon on his background, belief system, his worldview, his current feelings on President Trump, and how films such as Henry King’s TWELVE O’CLOCK HIGH, John Ford’s THE SEARCHERS, and Orson Welles’ CHIMES AT MIDNIGHT became part of Bannon’s understanding of the world. Frank and unflinching, Morris grapples with his own contention of Bannon’s ideology and methodology. With AMERICAN DHARMA, Morris proposes that even for those who disagree with Bannon, ignoring him is a dangerous course of action.

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.

Post-screening discussion with Mario Cyr on Sunday, December 1rst, at 3:000 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.

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.

Presented in original italian version with French subtitles.

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

 

Mozart’s FLÛTE ENCHANTÉE by the Salzburg Festival.

Created in 1920 in the hometown of Mozart, the Salzburg Festival in Austria is one of the world’s largest opera festivals. The young American director Lydia Steier made her debut there by offering a rereading of Mozart’s timeless masterpiece. She creates a new character, that of the narrator who tells the story of the opera as a grandfather reads a fairy tale to his grandchildren. This staging bias combined with the gigantic moving sets that occupy the whole stage brings a new look to Mozart’s magical opera, with its different worlds, which is here transposed into the Viennese bourgeoisie of the beginning of the twentieth century.

An exuberant feast supported by a careful orchestral direction, Lydia Steier’s nod to Rob Reiner at the dawn of the Second World War exacerbates the evocative power of the narrative through ingenious narration. Klaus Maria Brandauer shines there, surrounded by great voices.

Post-screening discussion with Mario Cyr on Sunday, December 1rst, at 3:000 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.

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.

Maurice Steger is an incredibly charismatic musician: spontaneous, captivating and full of energy. With his vibrant manner, intense and full instrumental sound and amazing technique, this “recorder wizard” has managed to bring to prominence the recorder as an instrument in all its fascinating forms. He has been celebrated as the “the Paganini of the recorder” by music critics and been succinctly described as “the world’s leading recorder virtuoso” (the Independent) – today Maurice Steger is one of the most fascinating recorder players in the sphere of Earlymusic. “The speed he can reach is astonishing, especially since the steadiness of the sound is absolute.” Claude Gingras.
 

For many music lovers, viola da gamba simply means Hille Perl, she is virtually a synonym for this instrument. She loved the dark, soft sound as a child and started playing the viola da gamba at the age of five. She always likes to push the tonal and technical possibilities of the instrument to the limit. She is considered to be one of the world’s finest viola da gamba players, specializing in solo and ensemble music of the 17th and 18th centuries.

Diego Ares studied piano with Aleksandras Jurgelionis and Aldona Dvarionaite. At the age of fourteen Pilar Cancio introduced him to the harpsichord. In 2002 he moved to Holland to work with Richard Egarr. He perfected his technique with harpsichordists Carmen Schibli (disciple of Eta Harich-Schneider) and Genoveva Gálvez. His recordings have received such awards as the Diapason d’Or (three times), “Choc” from Classica, “Maestro” from Pianiste, “Excepcional” from Scherzo, and the “Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik”.

Presented in original multilingual version subtitled in English.

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.
