Cinéma Public is pleased to announce the addition of three new features to its online programming, available everywhere in Canada.
From April 30, Cinéma Public will present About Endlessness by Roy Andersson, winner of the Silver Lion Award for Best Director at the Venice Film Festival 2019. The film is a kaleidoscopic reflection on human life in all its beauty and cruelty, splendour and banality. Available on the same day, Fait vivir by Oscar Ruiz Navia tells us about the myth and dreams of the Gypsy Kumbia Orchestra, an adventurous and unusual Montreal ensemble that propels a movement of freedom.
The Quebec exclusive La cabane aux oiseaux by French filmmaker Célia Rivière features 40 minutes of animated images inspired by nine children’s literature stories. The film is produced by French company Dandelooo, based on episodes from La cabane à histoires, a series that won an International Emmy Award in 2017. It will be online starting May 1st.
Animation for young and old, that’s what is offered by the special program A Stop Motion Adventure, presented in partnership with the Festival Stop Motion Montreal. Featuring eight short films from six countries (Japan, Argentina, South Korea, Canada, United States, and United Kingdom), this exclusive program is now available.
Cinéma Public also reminds that Disrupting the Social Order, a retrospective of the work of Canadian filmmaker Kazik Radwanski, will be available from April 14 to May 31. The filmmaker’s entire body of work will be presented, including his most recent film, Anne at 13,000 ft. A pre-recorded discussion between Kazik Radwanski and actress Deragh Campbell will also be made available.
This carefully curated selection is an addition to the films already available on the platform such as Like a House on Fire by Canadian director Jesse Noah Klein, illustrating the struggle of a woman who wishes to regain the life she left behind.
