For the Year of Biodiversity, Antitube is teaming up with Institut Hydro-Quebec en Environnement, Développement et Société (EDS; Université Laval)

A program of Quebec films focused on the interconnections between environmental, social, and cultural issues.

Fiction, experimental film, docufiction, documentary—all genres are fair game in Quebec filmmakers’ quest to show the transformations happening in our shared physical and symbolic spaces.

The public is invited to special events on October 28 and 29, 2010, with the directors of the program’s two full-length films, Simon Galiero and Céline Baril, in attendance to introduce their works and discuss with audiences.

Don’t miss special screenings of La femme étrangère, by Robert Morin and Lorraine Dufour (October 28), and Mamori, by Karl Lemiux (October 29).

Thursday, October 28 and Friday, October 29, 2010


Event program

October 28, 2010, 7:30 p.m.
La femme étrangère

La femme étrangère

Robert Morin and Lorraine Dufour, 1988, 25 min., Betacam SP.

Videographer Robert Morin delivers a surprise, to say the least—a video filmed with the aboriginal inhabitants of the Amazon in the late 1980s. It is never quite clear how, but Morin managed to convince the members of a tribe to play out a feud—on camera—with rivals vying for the heart of a single woman. Quirky but subtle.

Nuages sur la ville

Nuages sur la ville

Simon Galiero, 2009, 80 min., B&W, 35 mm.

An up-and-coming player on Quebec’s film scene, Galiero here pays homage to his forefathers (the title references an Arthur Lamothe filme from the 1960s, and directors Jean-Pierre Lefebvre and Robert Morin play the two main characters). An unflinching, often satirical look at a now-bygone era, and a black-and-white elegy to the fraught relationships between fathers and their children, with dialogue that captures the generation gap that grows out of doubts about the state of the world.


                        SIMON GALIERO WILL BE IN ATTENDANCE.

October 29, 2010, 7:30 p.m.


Karl Lemieux, 2010, 9 min., DigiBeta.

Shown for the first time in Quebec, this is the final work of a giant of Quebec experimental film. An abstract film anchored by a soundtrack of Amazonian field recordings.

La théorie du tout

La théorie du tout

Céline Baril, 2010, 90 min., DigiBeta.

This generous film is an understated yet deeply affecting look at Quebec’s rural areas where, despite residents’ best effort, the social fabric is unravelling. Through a patient accretion of social and environmental observations, La théorie du tout tells the story of a time and place—not always a pretty story but one that’s impossible to ignore, and told without a hint of condescension.

                        CÉLINE BARIL WILL BE IN ATTENDANCE.
