Friday, May 11 | 8:30pm | Cinematheque

Thierry Garrel's FRENCH FRENCH Four is devoted to one of the finest cineastes working in documentary today, Alain Cavalier. Portrait XL No. 6 Léon, along with the three mini portraits preceding it are pleasing in the most elegant sense. These films were not easy to source, but they were well worth the effort! Tactile, intimate and beaming with life, you won't want to miss your opportunity to see Alain Cavalier's final set of portraits as part of fourth edition of FRENCH FRENCH.

 

The Creator of Universes

Sunday, May 13 | 4:15pm | Cinematheque

In The Creator of Universes, director Mercedes Dominioni documents the relationship between her 16-year-old brother and 97-year-old grandmother as they spend their days creating amateur telenovelas. Her poetic sensibilities combine humour and playfulness to offer gentle reminder of what the act of creation can offer when the ordinary is met with wild imagination.
