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.

Cry Baby

John Waters

John Waters is an American filmmaker, actor, and cinema professor. An unconventional filmmaker who breaks down genres with his decidedly trashy cinema, he often highlights strong women in his films. In the early 1970s, he created his most violent films: Pink Flamingos (1972), for which he was fined for obscenity, and Female Trouble (1974), starring the drag queen Divine. Regarded as a cult filmmaker and a prominent figure in underground cinema, Waters gained international recognition with Polyester (1981), the first film in Odorama. He then reached a wider audience with an adaptation of the successful musical, Hairspray (1988), before showcasing Johnny Depp's talent in Cry-Baby (1990). He is also known for cult films such as Serial Mom (1994) and Cecil B. Demented (2000).

Dans mon pays, on vénère le mauvais goût. Et, bien sûr, le mauvais goût d’ici peut être le bon goût d’ailleurs. Mes films rendent bien hommage au sens de l’humour et de l’autodérision des habitants de Baltimore.
