Original French version, English subtitles

 

Antonin, a talker and a schemer, is torn by his need to be in society and a desire to stay away from it. He becomes entangled as he confronts five surrounding women: his sister, his wife, his eventual mistress, a tax collector, and a student he robbed. In Hygiène Sociale, Denis Côté places his characters in fields, motionless, reading their lines in a fully assumed theatrical tone. Playing with the limits of cinema itself, Côté's unique and creative voice will challenge audiences, inspiring everything but indifference.

Original French version

 

The first snow falls on Quebec. At the dawn of the disappearance of their small community of nuns, the congregation of Marie Auxiliatrice begins what will become the sorting of a lifetime - a life of struggles. These brave all-terrain activists, who have faith in God but not in a male-dominated Church, have years of commitment to women's rights, social justice and international solidarity behind them: a precious heritage. Between apprehension of death, frank bursts of laughter and watered meals, these women, worthy and free, deeply experience the meaning of sorority. Until the end.
- Text from Festival de cinéma de la ville de Québec (FCVQ)

Existing on the peripheries of horror, video art and landscape painting, Sleep Has Her House is an experimental and contemplative film object. First conceived as a gallery installation, this first feature from filmmaker/artist Scott Barley transforms nature and the elements into a dreamlike canvas that oscillates between dream and nightmare. Only nature and some spectral animals act as characters in this truly singular work shot and made entirely by Scott Barley.

In Gunda, director Viktor Kosakovskiy's (Aquarela)'s latest film, we are plunged into the immersive daily life of a sow as she tends to her litter on a farm. A universe that is both familiar and destabilizing, the film finds tremendous and poetic beauty in its minimalist black and white exploration of Gunda's life, as well as those of the chickens and cows that share her space. Without music and dialogue, the film manages to grip the viewer by drawing them into a rich and mysterious animal world of powerful and transcendent emotions.

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.

As she works to unravel a mystery linked to the disappearance of her sister, Enid will slowly sink into a pit of inescapable terror.

As the first entry into our new recurring series, Canada Cult, Cinéma Moderne unearths a radical and rather obscure genre project: Thanatomorphose by Montreal filmmaker Éric Falardeau. While this groundbreaking film has played worldwide in various specialized festivals, it has never had a proper release in Quebec.

A PhD candidate in communication studies and author of the book Une histoire des effets spéciaux au Québec published in 2017, Falardeau delivers his only feature film: a singular body horror, a visceral film in which a young woman struggling with her career and frustrated by her romantic relationship, starts to decompose while still alive. A unique and singular vision within the Quebec cinematic canon.
