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.

John Huston

Born in 1906 in Missouri, John Huston was the only son of journalist Rhea Gore and Canadian-born actor Walter Huston. He quickly dropped out of school to pursue a career as a boxer, before trying his hand at acting following his father's footsteps. Over the following years, he spent extended periods of time in Mexico and Europe while starting to write. Upon his arrival in Hollywood, he penned screenplays for William Wyler, Raoul Walsh and Howard Hawks, among others, before transitioning to directing films in 1941 with The Maltese Falcon, which was an immediate success. During World War II, he shot documentaries while serving in the military. The major works he directed after the war allowed him to establish himself as a leading director, while also pursuing an acting career. Until the 1980s, he built a diverse and unpredictable body of work, mirroring his passionate life, divided between cinema, painting, horses, the United States, Ireland and Mexico.
