LITTLE GIRL (sta)
LITTLE GIRL is the moving portrait of 7-year-old Sasha, who has always known that she is a girl. Sasha’s family has recently accepted her gender identity, embracing their daughter for who she truly is while working to confront outdated norms and find affirmation in a small community of rural France. Realized with delicacy and intimacy, Sébastien Lifshitz’s documentary poetically explores the emotional challenges, everyday feats, and small moments in Sasha’s life.

RUMBA RULES, NEW GENEALOGIES (sta)
Permeating the daily life of one of the great orchestras of the current generation, RUMBA RULES proposes an incursion into the arcanes of a monumental African music. Ya Mayi, Lumumba, Xéna La Guerrière, Pitchou Travolta, Alfred Solo, Soleil Patron and many others: nearly thirty artists feed the creative life of the Brigade Sarbati Orchestra. By entering the group and the city of Kinshasa, the film gets into the rumba as if it were penetrating a rootstock. Through studio work, rehearsals and concerts, different portraits offer a foray into the dynamics and stories of this highly acclaimed Congolese music. From local roots to the patrons from the diaspora, the voices of Rumba Rules polyphony are past and present.

CONFINÉ
Without international races for 2020, Mathieu Blanchard take on the challenge of crossing the Gaspé Peninsula by taking the hinterland. From the Matapedia valley, via the Chic-Chocs, to the end of the world in Forillon, his goal is to run over 650km and 30,000m of elevation gain ... in one week.

The uncertainty about his ability to complete this adventure is greater than ever. He will be confronted with his physical and mental limits and will have to face trails worthy of Jurassic Park.

FRENCH TECH (sta)
Alexandre is unemployed and his bank account has been frozen. His wife is on a two-month top secret nuclear submarine mission. While she’s away, he has to prove that he can take care of the children and find a job. Following a surreal interview, he is hired at The Box on a trial basis – and thus Alexandre enters the 24-7 world of a greenwashed start-up with a strict no-child policy. He meets Arcimboldo, who juggles different jobs and apps and offers to look after the kids in exchange for accommodation. Between Alexandre’s killer colleague Severine, incessant conference calls and endless team building sessions, keeping his secret is no easy challenge…
