Black at the camera

Black at the Camera is more than a hundred years of Black cinema. From silent cinema dealing with segregation to films testifying decolonization; from animation to documentaries, including historical reconstructions. The new generation is not left out, expressing itself with aplomb in all forms of contemporary cinema. This ensemble also reflects the work of Canadian and Quebec filmmakers, will be presented to the public at the Cinémathèque québécoise throughout the month of June.

This program, produced in collaboration with the Fabienne Colas Foundation and the Montreal International Black Film Festival, is also supported by the Cinémathèque Afrique of The Institut français.

«Atlantique»: des zombies et des femmes

L’œuvre élégante et ambitieuse se décline en plusieurs tons : film social presque documentaire, romance, fantastique, polar, avec passages entre les genres pas toujours au point. Un scénario parfois effiloché, des jeux d’interprètes assez appuyés se greffent à des scènes parfois remarquables, nourries de réalisme magique...

Le fait de parler d’une génération fantôme, disparue en mer, m’obligeait à en parler du point de vue de celles qui restent.
