Music!

Our summer cycle will be festive or not. Sound and image, song and dance, instrument and breathing, strings and gestures: so many possible combinations to express what cinema and music can achieve and express together. Musicals, concert films, catchy music. Jazz, classical, contemporary, disco, punk... Revolt and enchantment, distress and emphasis, joy and rhythm, melancholy and bass, laughter and stridency: diverse expressions characterizing cinema and music's historical alliance, will definitely make us fly, dream, dance!

From the 30's to the present day and across all possible genres, this cycle aims to open our minds at a time when we most need it. The first week of July will be an eventful one, as the cycle will open with several evenings in cabaret mode, where we will present for the first time concert films produced in Quebec during the confinement, with the participation of major artists of the current music scene: Klô Pelgag, Marie Davidson and Godspeed You! Black Emperor.

Ralph Bakshi

Ralph Bakshi, born October 29, 1938 in Haifa, is an American film and television director, screenwriter and producer. Mostly active in the field of animation, he has also directed films mixing animation and live action, and one film with actors only. While the animation industry was in crisis during the 1960s and 1970s in the United States, Bakshi attempted to establish an alternative to traditional animation through independent productions targeting adult audiences.
