305 BELLECHASSE (STA)
The 305 Bellechasse documentary is a gateway to the richness of the creative life of artists who have established their studio in this ancient pasta factory. Located at the confluence of the neighborhoods of Petite-Patrie, Mile End and Little Italy, this building has become, over time, a lair of artists of talent and renown and one of the hidden treasure of contemporary painting in Montreal. Last October, the Schiff family who had owned the building for the last 70 years sold the building to Mondev Real Estate. Now the artist’s presence in the 305 is in jeopardy. Hope this documentary will rise the question of the importance of keeping creative space in our cities.

ETERNAL SPRING (STA)
Representing Canada at the 2023 Oscars - Best International Film category

In March 2002, a state TV signal in China gets hacked by members of the banned spiritual group Falun Gong. Their goal is to counter the government narrative about their practice.

In the aftermath, police raids sweep Changchun City, and comic book illustrator Daxiong (Justice League, Star Wars), a Falun Gong practitioner, is forced to flee. He arrives in North America, blaming the hijacking for worsening an already violent repression. But his views are challenged when he meets the lone surviving participant to have escaped China, now living in Seoul, South Korea.

Combining present-day footage with 3D animation inspired by Daxiong’s art, Eternal Spring (長春) retraces the event on its 20th anniversary, and brings to life an unprecedented story of defiance told through harrowing eyewitness accounts of persecution and incredible artistry. Eternal Spring is an exhilarating tale of determination to speak up for political and religious freedoms, no matter the cost.

FUIR
Filmed in a refuge for abused women, BREAK FREE shows the courage of these women, most of whom tell their story openly to the camera. The film chronicles the shelter’s ups and downs, its dramatic and happy moments, and at its heart we get to know the residents and workers. Break Free was filmed over more than three months and reveals the immense wounds of these women and the great generosity of the ones who try to heal them.
