While young and in her prime, Nadia decides to retire from pro swimming after the Olympic Games to escape a rigid life of sacrifice.

Original Cantonese version, English subtitles

 

Made in Hong Kong is a powerful film about a disenfranchised youth navigating through life in Hong Kong just before the Handover, shot with passion and fury from leftover film reels. This explosive energy runs through Fruit Chan's independent classic, an essential exploration of a generation (and a nation) struggling through an identity crisis. As we follow the story and the daily struggles of a young delinquent who falls in love with a sick teenage girl, we're brought into a world that is as vital now as it was when it was first released in 1997. This new 4K digital restoration gives audiences new and old an opportunity to (re) discover this contemporary and urgent classic.

Véritable capsule temporelle d'un New York d'autrefois, celui des cultures émergentes et revendicatrices du hip hop et de la scène du skateboard avant qu'elles deviennent monnaie courante dans la culture populaire, All the Streets Are Silent nous replonge avec énergie dans cette scène vibrante. De la brève existence du Club Mars, une des premières boîtes de nuits de la ville à mettre le rap de l'avant, jusqu'aux pionniers du skate qui, par passion, ont réussi à définir une identité urbaine new yorkaise qui demeure plus présente que jamais aujourd'hui, le documentaire de Jeremy Elkin explore les divers liens qui en sont venus à unir ces deux cultures. Comme le dit Darryl McDaniels de Run-DMC: "It's the same expression, but two different presentations ".

The Deer Hunter

Original English version

 

* As part of the Post-Moderne cinéclub - choice of Pascal Plante

“My cinema bible. This colossal work by Michael Cimino set before, during and after the Vietnam War (the first major cinematographic work to address this conflict) prides itself on bringing together one of the most incredible collections of American actors of the most prosperous decade of cinema and features Robert De Niro, Christopher Walken, Meryl Streep, and John Cazale at their peak. Cimino amalgamates the landscapes of Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia to give birth to the working-class town of Clairton, composed mainly of steelworkers of Lithuanian origin, keen on hunting and the great outdoors, of the Russian Orthodox religious denomination: an atypical portrait of "deep America," so dear to the filmmaker, which reminds us, in doing so, that the United States was built by the sweat of immigrants and that they are, again and again, the absurd victims of armed political conflicts. Clairton and its inhabitants remain frozen in time, but the survivors of the War find themselves forever changed. Never has a "God Bless America" ​​been so sinister as the epilogue of this devastating film ...

To see The Deer Hunter again for me is like reuniting with old friends. True, they are far from flawless, but they vibrate with so much humanity that it is impossible not to empathize with them. All I need is to hear a few classical guitar notes from the mythical theme to stir up deep emotions in me.
