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.

In 1957, Stanley Donen brought together Audrey Hepburn, Fred Astaire and the Gershwin brothers, to create a musical comedy tinged with old-fashioned airs of romance, set against a definitively Parisian backdrop...

Drôle de frimousse - Can one kiss do all of this ?

Contrairement aux numéros figés de Leslie Caron et Maurice Chevalier, ceux de Fred Astaire et d’Hepburn sont les témoignages permanents de l’inventivité de Donen, de sa passion pour la couleur et de sa fascination pour le cinéma-mouvement...
