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.

A magical mixture: Catherine Deneuve, François Dorléac and Michel Legrand!

Plongée dans les décors des « Demoiselles de Rochefort », les plus romantiques du cinéma

Il y a de ces décors de cinéma qui marquent, au point de presque prendre complètement le dessus sur l’histoire. À l’instar de celui des « Demoiselles de Rochefort », chef d’œuvre de Jacques Demy sorti en salles en 1967 ...

Pourquoi "Les Demoiselles de Rochefort" ne flétriront jamais ?

Ce sont les improvisations du scat des années 60 qui résonnent encore, et le rire gourmand de la création à quatre mains. Demy les mots, Legrand la musique. À l’écran cela nous donne, en capeline rose Catherine (Dorléac) Deneuve avec la voix d’Anne Germain, et en capeline jaune, Françoise Dorléac avec la voix de Claude Parent ...
