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.

Fred Zinnemann

Fred Zinnemann is an American director and producer of Austrian origin. After studying law and violin, he went to Paris to study camera work. He became an assistant cameraman, then assistant director. He fled Nazi Germany and left for Hollywood in 1929. His cinema deals with intimate and political revolt, heroic values and the refusal of compromise. It is a reflection on human dignity. He was one of the first directors to insist on the use of authentic locations and to mix stars and civilians to give more realism to his films. Within the film industry, he was considered a maverick who took risks and created unique films, many of his stories being dramas about principled, lonely individuals challenged by tragic events. He won four Academy Awards for directing and producing films in a variety of genres, including thrillers, westerns, film noir, and play adaptations. He has directed 25 feature films in his 50-year career. (Wikipedia)
