What to see at Cinéma Moderne in October

Cinéma Moderne is proud to present quality movies on the big screen, where Quebec and international works, new releases and cult films are offered to the public. In October, moviegoers will have the chance to discover the 2D version of the feature film Long Day’s Journey Into Night by Bi Gan, a quest for a lost love mixing nostalgia and reality, and Carpinteros, a film by José María Cabral that brings us into the heart of a prison in Dominican Republic, where love between two prisoners evolves through sign language.

Also on the program, Alexandre the Fool by Pedro Pires, which tells the story of a refined and sensitive schizophrenic at a crossroads, Craig Brewer’s Dolemite Is My Name, which chronicles the life of comedian and actor Rudy Ray Moore, and Xalko by Sami Mermer and Hind Benchekroun, which highlights the women of a Kurdish village in Anatolia.

The original series, an essential part of the monthly programming of Cinéma Moderne, are back this month. From Mile End With Love will offer The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz by Ted Kotcheff and a guided tour of the neighborhood organized by Mile End Memories, while M: les Maudits presents Candyman by Bernard Rose, George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead, as well as The Thing and They Live by John Carpenter. The cELLEuloid series is back with Laissez bronzer les cadavres by Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani, and the production company Isuma will screen La rivière sans repos by Marie-Hélène Cousineau, an adaptation of Gabrielle Roy’s eponymous novel. Finally, Les Petits Modernes is pleased to include screenings of Festival Stop Motion Montreal: Youth program.
