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.

Gilberte Valandray is hiding an embarrassing secret from her husband, Georges: she has an ex-husband, an American named Eric! When Eric arrives in Paris on business and meets with Georges, Gilberte naturally expects the worst. The film is a tribute to the best of bedroom farces, a witty operetta with loads of sexual overtones.

Alain Resnais

Alain Resnais was a French film director and screenwriter whose career extended over more than six decades. After training as a film editor in the mid-1940s, he went on to direct a number of short films which included Night and Fog (1956), an influential documentary about the Nazi concentration camps. Resnais began making feature films in the late 1950s and consolidated his early reputation with Hiroshima mon amour (1959), Last Year at Marienbad (1961), and Muriel (1963), all of which adopted unconventional narrative techniques to deal with themes of troubled memory and the imagined past. These films were contemporary with, and associated with, the French New Wave (la Nouvelle Vague), though Resnais did not regard himself as being fully part of that movement.

Alain Resnais, un cinéaste qui croyait aux joies de montrer et raconter

«Homme-cinéma» à un degré rarement atteint, Resnais s’en défendait, insistant toujours sur le rôle selon lui décisif de ses scénaristes, de ses acteurs, de ses producteurs, de ses techniciens. C’était la marque d’un autre trait essentiel de sa personnalité, une courtoisie modeste et souriante, une manière d’adoucir en permanence le tranchant de son exceptionnelle intelligence par une douceur et une élégance qui auront marqué à jamais quiconque aura eu le privilège de le fréquenter, ne serait-ce qu’un peu...
