Cinéma Moderne is pleased to add movies to its online programming. In addition to more than 40 films already on the platform, moviegoers will be able to view carefully chosen films from here and elsewhere, in the comfort of their own homes.

The Body Remembers When the World Broke Open by Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers and Kathleen Hepburn tells a story of mutual aid between two women who do not know each other, while illustrating the need for indigenous peoples to protect each other in a society too often indifferent to their existence.

Films offered this month will take film lovers on a journey : the documentary Journal de Bolivie by Jules Falardeau and Jean-Philippe Nadeau Marcoux, in which we follow the journey by bus of three generations of a Bolivian Guevarist group celebrating the 50th anniversary of the death of Che, while the fiction Nuestras Madres by César Diaz takes us to Guatemala in the daily life of a forensic anthropologist investigating the disappearance of his father, a guerrilla who went missing in the 1980s.

After having hosted the Film POP program in theatres a few weeks ago, the cinema collaborates once again with the festival to present Keyboards Fantasies: The Beverly Glenn-Copeland Story and Lisbon Beat, two musical documentaries allowing to immerse oneself in marginal cultures.

The online platform will also present The Painted Bird by Václav Marhoul, a meticulous 35mm black and white evocation of Eastern Europe at the bloody end of WWII.

As part of the Korean Film Festival Canada (KFFC) and in partnership with cELLEuoid, will be presented the South Korean romantic drama Lucky Chan-sil, by Kim Cho-hee, following a 40-year-old woman trying to survive after losing her job.

Seen at the Berlinale and at the Rencontres internationales du documentaire de Montréal in 2019, Ne croyez surtout pas que je hurle de Frank Beauvais offers a moving and poetic montage of the 400 films the director watched while he was going through a breakup.
