Synopsis

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.
