WARS by Nicolas Roy presented in partnership with Crave
It is also as part of its agreement with the Crave platform that CINEMANIA will premiere NICOLAS ROY’s GUERRES on Thursday, November 11 at 6 pm at the Imperial Cinema in the presence of the director and part of the film team. This drama centered around the army earned Éléonore Loiselle the prize for the best actress for her performance at the Karlovy Vary festival last July.
At the age of twenty, Emma decided to enlist in the army. Not only does she want to follow in her father’s footsteps, but she also yearns to get rid of an oppressive sense of existential emptiness. Although the strict discipline of the army helps her to free herself, she gradually discovers that in this male society, it is very difficult to repress her emotions.
Distributed in Quebec by Axia Filmsandproduced by Nicolas Comeau for 1976 Productions, GUERRES will be shown in cinemas across the province on November 12 before being available on the viewing platform.
The 27th edition of CINEMANIA takes place from 2 to 14 November in theaters in Montreal and from November 2 to 21 online accessible anywhere in Canada.
