Quebec's cinema

In collaboration with Télé-Québec

Prix du jury Étudiant – Montreal International Documentary Festival 2018

20-22 OMEGA invites us on a pure cinematic odyssey into our civilization with a profound look at the humanity emerging in the Anthropocene, the epoch being shaped by human presence and activities. Shot over 5 years across 100 locations, with exclusive access to popular as well as restricted places, spectacular events and fascinating characters, evocative images document and reveal this new humanity known as Posthumanism. In symphony with the images, cathedral organ music, choir songs and Inuit throat singing come together to create a singular operatic soundtrack, standing in for speech. With its gorgeous black and white celluloid images and immersive music, this film reprises the classical symphonic form of Early cinema to tell the story of the postmodern western world full of machines, technology and dense crowds.
