Impetus (STA)
The film will be preceded by the short film TANDEM by Étienne Galloy in collaboration with PLEIN(S) ÉCRAN(S) EN SALLE.

Switching freely between fiction and documentary, self-portrait and poetic essay, Montreal and New York, in her latest film Jennifer Alleyn reflects on creativity, everyday poetry, solitude and the beauty of human contact. The film builds itself while we watch, as Alleyn puts herself in the frame, using experimentation to find a liberated cinema, which she achieves with the help of two actors, Emmanuel Schwartz and Pascale Bussières. A meditation on the actor’s role and the realities of fully independent cinema, Impetus celebrates listening to others, and the possibilities found in the interstices between reality and imagination.

Gift (STA)
Shown with English or french subtitles depending on the time of the showing

Inspired by Lewis Hyde’s beloved classic The Gift: Creativity and the Artist in the Modern World, GIFT is a richly cinematic film, interweaving character‐driven stories. On North America’s Pacific Northwest Coast, a young indigenous man undertakes the elaborate preparations for a potlatch—to make a name for himself by giving everything away. In Rome, Italy, a factory occupied by migrant families is transformed into a living museum, protected by a “barricade of art”: a model of resistance, and an invaluable gift. In the pirate utopia of Burning Man, a mutant bumblebee art car distributes honey in a post-­apocalyptic desert landscape. Meanwhile, in Auckland, New Zealand, artist Mingwei Lee prepares to launch Sonic Blossom – a “transformative gift” of song. GIFT is a tribute to something that can’t be measured or counted, bought or sold. Exploring the parallels between artists’ work and a gift economy, it’s a reflection on the creative process, the reasons we “labour in service of our gifts”, and a celebration of the imagination.

Le chant du granit (STF)
Enigmatic and complex, Joe Heaney was one of the greats of traditional Irish singing (Sean Nós). Shaped by the myths, fables, and songs of his upbringing in the west of Ireland, his emergence as a gifted artist came at a personal cost. Featuring performances from Colm Seoighe, Macdara Ó Fátharta, Jaren Cerf, Lisa O'Neill, Damien Dempsey, and Sean Nós singers Mícheál Ó Chonfhaola and Pól Ó Ceannabháin, and beautiful black and white cinematography, Song of Granite is a distinct portrait of Heaney’s life and a marvelous exploration of music and song.

Non-Fiction (STA)
Alain (Guillaume Canet) is a self-assured and successful book publisher struggling with the ins and outs of both his professional and private life. His relationship with his wife, Serena (Juliette Binoche), has gone slightly stale, and he has to deal delicately with one of his long-time authors (Vincent Macaigne), who has written a new manuscript and is pushing for its publication. Complicating this is Alain's enthusiastic embrace of digital and social media, which has led him to hire an impressively ambitious young woman as the "head of digital transition" in his company. As Alain pushes his new-media agenda forward, he encounters, variously, support and resistance from friends and colleagues.
