CINÉ-HISTOIRE: QUE LA FÊTE COMMENCE
CÉSAR 1976 : Best director - Best supporting actor (Jean Rochefort) - Best original screenplay - Best production design

When Louis XIV died, his nephew, Duke Philippe d'Orléans, became regent until Louis XV came of age. However, the duke was a most debauched man who let himself be influenced by the bad advice of the abbot Dubois. Led by the maquis of Pontcallec, a Breton rebellion was prepared to overthrow the regent.

HAUTE TENSION A CHINATOWN (STF)
In the early 20th century, Chinatowns began to appear in North American cities. Today, these communities are deeply inscribed with historical, cultural, and emotional values and filled with generational family businesses. Often bordered by affluent neighbourhoods, they are threatened by developers keen to exploit the land for its real estate value. Big Fight in Little Chinatown exposes attempted evictions and highlights the fighting spirit of communities defending their heritage. In today’s context, where anti-Chinese racism has been exacerbated by the pandemic, this intelligent film, brimming with emotion and levity, sets the record straight.

BASQUIAT: BLUE NOTE RECORDS: BEYOND THE NOTES (STF)
This film is presented as part of the BASQUIAT AND FILM series, in collaboration with the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.

Thursday, February 2nd and Sunday, February 5th: With the series curator and cultural advisor, Ansfrid Tchetchenigbo. He will introduce the films and offer some ideas about how they connect with Basquiat’s work.


A revelatory, thrilling and emotional journey behind the scenes of Blue Note Records, the pioneering label that gave voice to some of the finest jazz artists of the 20th and 21st centuries.

“A Smart, Exhilarating Look at an Influential Label… ...This documentary directed by Sophie Huber makes a point right off that Blue Note Records is still very much a thing of the present… This tidy, thoughtful film gets at jazz’s joy and pain.” - Glenn Kenny, The New York Times (Critic’s Pick)

“Jazz may be a quintessentially American art form, but it is Europeans who make some of the best jazz documentaries, with the captivating 'Blue Note Records: Beyond The Notes' being the latest case in point. Potently directed by Switzerland’s Sophie Huber...” - Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

“Damn-near immaculate music documentary" - Leslie Felperin, The Guardian

SAINT OMER (STA)
Representing France at 2023 Oscars

Saint Omer court of law. Young novelist Rama attends the trial of Laurence Coly, a young woman accused of killing her 15-month-old daughter by abandoning her to the rising tide on a beach in northern France. But as the trial continues, the words of the accused and witness testimonies will shake Rama’s convictions and call into question our own judgement.


Co-written with author Marie NDiaye (who also co-wrote WHITE MATERIALl at TIFF 2009 with Claire Denis) and Amrita David, Alice Diop's editor, and filmed with precision and elegance by the great Claire Mathon.

SAINT OMER is compelling, affirming and incendiary in its deconstruction of the ongoing violence imposed on black women in French society. It is also one of the most accomplished and important first films in a long time, and will certainly confirm Alice Diop's talent on the international stage.
