Vidéo club – focus on Anne Emond
In collaboration with the Cinéma Moderne, Vidéographe presents a program of four short fiction films by Anne Émond, who will be on-site to show her work and answer questions from the public.
Plus rien ne vouloir, L’ordre des choses, Naissance et Sophie Lavoie follow the intimacy of four different protagonists in a unique way. Themes of death, loss, and hope are at the heart of this program, which stands out for the vulnerability of its characters.
The screening concludes with a convivial gathering where the public can enjoy a drink offered by Vidéographe.
The films will be presented with closed captioning and an LSQ interpreter will also be present to accompany the discussion.
We look forward to seeing you all on December 6th at the Cinéma Moderne!
Open doors at 6pm
Screening starts at 6:30 pm
