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.

Based on the Fellini's movie Nights of Cabiria.

Extrait | Hey Big Spender
Remake du film de Federico Fellini, Les nuits de Cabiria (1957). Le personnage de Charity, inspiré par celui de Giulietta Masina, héroïne des Nuits de Cabiria, rappelle davantage deux rôles de filles légères que Shirley MacLaine tint précédemment, Ginnie dans Comme un torrent (1958) et Irma la Douce (1963).
