THE VELVET QUEEN (STA)
Wildlife photographer Vincent Munier travels the Tibetan plateau with writer Sylvain Tesson (The Consolations of the Forest: Alone in a Cabin on the Siberian Taiga). For months under often-challenging climatic conditions, they patiently track the elusive snow leopard, a creature whose rarity and magnificence border on myth. Documentarist Marie Amiguet maintains a low profile as she captures the fierce beauty of the landscape, a rugged, unforgiving terrain that forms the backdrop for the reflections of two artists on the troubled relationship between humankind and the environment. A poetic meditation infused with sincerity and simplicity that questions our relationship with nature and the threat human activity poses to the planet.

CITY OF A DREAM (STA)
Montréal was initially the dream of people who believed in the possibility of creating a better world in New France. Who were those people? Which ideal did they pursue, and why? The answers can be found in a 17th century manuscript, allegedly the hidden memoir of Jeanne Mance. The filmmaker revisits this story in an original, personal way, highlighting how the past echoes the still current yearning to create a world with more humanistic values.

CODA : LA VIE EN MUSIQUE (STF)
Henry Cole is a famous pianist who is making a return to the stage after a long absence. During the inaugural concert, he is struck by severe stage fright and narrowly escapes disaster. Afterwards, his psychological condition continues to deteriorate, to the point where his career is in jeopardy and, with it, his identity and the meaning of his life. Then Helen Morrison, an ex-pianist turned music critic, arrives and wants to get an interview and write an article about Henry. But he is a reserved and austere man, who does not like to talk about himself. Helen persists nevertheless and ends up gaining his trust. Thus was born a singular relationship, based on a common sensibility and on the love of music. Henry seems strengthened and starts playing the piano again. Helen believes him still fragile. She proposes a trip, a concert in a remote place, in Sils-Maria in Haute-Engadine. She had once found the answer to her malaise there, and she hoped that he would find his own.

RETOUR EN ITALIE: QUI RIDO IO (STA)
The great actor and comedian Eduardo Scarpetta, star of the film and played by Toni Servillo, is the hit of the box office. Of humble origins, he established himself thanks to his comedies and his characters and became very rich and very famous. At the peak of his success, Scarpetta took a dangerous venture: parodying The Daughter of Iorio, the tragedy of the greatest Italian poet of the time, Gabriele D'Annunzio. Will he be able to win this match too? The film perfectly reconstructs an era and one of its major protagonists, capable of admirably communicating between public and private space in an unforgettable context - city and historical moment.


Note that director Mario Martone will present his new film NOSTALGIA in competition at the Cannes Film Festival 2022.

CHER JACKIE (STF)
Baseball legend Jackie Robinson’s short stay in Montreal is a pretext to tell the story of ordinary citizens of Little Burgundy, Montreal’s first Black community, famously known throughout North America as the Harlem of the North. When Jackie Robinson became the first Black man to join the Brooklyn Dodgers’ farm team, the Montreal Royals, in 1946, he broke the colour barrier in Major League Baseball. The impossible seemed possible in a segregated North America. But did Montrealers use this historic moment to perpetuate a myth of a post-racial society?

Shot in black and white, Dear Jackie unfolds as an intimate correspondence with Jackie Robinson, who became a prominent civil rights activist, by contrasting key milestones from his time in Montreal with the actual experience of the Black Community revealed in powerful vérité moments.
