Bruce LaBruce: Tender and transgressive

September 27th - October 26th, 2022

The work of Canadian Bruce LaBruce has been acclaimed in the US and France, and have been shown at prestigious festivals, but the filmmaker remains relatively unknown in the Land of the Maple Leaf. This retrospective, the largest ever organized in Canada, will allow us to measure the audacity and exuberance of LaBruce's work while depicting all the variations of sexuality on screen, from gay eroticism to transgression. Here is a subversive, pleasurable and combative queer cinema which will leave no one indifferent.

Carte blanche

Lors de son passage à Montréal en octobre dernier pour le tournage de THE AFFAIRS OF LIDIA, nous avons proposé au cinéaste d’enrichir sa rétrospective d’une carte blanche composée de films l’ayant marqué ou ayant une importance particulière dans sa carrière. Les sept titres choisis indiquent à la fois son érudition cinéphilique, la pluralité de ses goûts et son audace.
