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.

Martin Scorsese

Martin Scorsese is an American filmmaker, actor, screenwriter, and producer. His body of work explores themes such as Italian-American identity, Catholic concepts of good and evil, guilt, redemption, faith, machismo, nihilism, crime, perdition, and violence. A major figure of the New Hollywood era, Scorsese is widely regarded as one of the greatest and most influential American filmmakers of his generation, thanks to classics such as Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, Mean Streets, and Casino, as well as Goodfellas, Gangs of New York, The Wolf of Wall Street, and many more. He has also dedicated his life to film preservation and film restoration by founding the nonprofit organization The Film Foundation in 1990, as well as the World Cinema Foundation in 2007 and the African Film Heritage Project in 2017.


Réalisé en 1977 entre Taxi Driver et The Last Waltz, Martin Scorsese situe son film New York, New York à la croisée de deux sentiments, la nostalgie d'un âge d'or révolu et une relecture critique, une dimension inhérente au meilleur du cinéma hollywoodien des années 1970. Le souvenir cinéphilique s'y heurte à la conscience d'une impossibilité de refaire désormais les choses telles qu'elles furent...
