Mourir en vie

Free screening. With Marcel Sabourin, Benoit Brière, Élise Guibault and Dorothée Berryman After the screening, the director and actor Benoit Brière, and Dr. Jean-François Chicoine, writer and producer of the film, will discuss with the audience. Hosted by Dr Mélissa Généreux. Montreal, a multigenerational house loaded with books, paintings and knick-knacks, so many memories revived on the evening of one last Christmas Eve. Luc, a retired pediatrician and teacher in his eighties, lives with his son François, a pediatrician like his father, and François’ wife Esther. Suffering and physically diminished, the old man has now decided to end his life. In a corrosive and sensitive verbal joust, he asks his son to end his days in privacy. The son then takes him on an existential and circus-like journey through the streets of Montreal where the father is supposed to go to his final destination, a hospital where he will be confronted with his ultimate wish: the choice between the finality of medical aid to die or a return to square one, the small pleasures of what remains of his life, alive.

Dialogues pour un homme seul

Official selection – The International Festival of Films on Art (FIFA) – 2021 In a magnificent, strangely empty theater, Edgar Bori embodies the quest of an author-in-residence working on the final draft of his next creation. Poetic lyrics, timeless melodies, the actor sings and speaks words that merge with those of Quebec poet and playwright Michel Garneau, whose powerful voice charged with meaning can be heard from time to time. We are carried away in the bewitching and luxuriant universe of a dramatic musical where imagination takes over through the dialogues of a lonely man. Alone, but not quite, for around him appear and disappear Jean-François Groulx, his accomplice musician, and Josianne Paradis, his idealized muse. This feature film stages the story of a romantic author’s last flight, as he risks himself into recapturing an unforgettable flame of his youth.Directed by Jean-Pierre Gariépy, this is a film adaptation of the play “Garneau/Bori” created in 2017 by Edgar Bori and directed by Michel Bruzat (Théâtre de la Passerelle, France).
