Cinéma Public and Les petites productions have teamed up to present three film evenings hosted by Montreal writers. The screening of 24 heures ou plus, selected by Alain Farah (Mille secrets, mille dangers), will be followed by a discussion between the author and Marie Leclaire.
This feature film made during an exceptionally feverish period of popular revolt that saw the coming together of Quebec’s 3 main unions (CSN, FTQ, CEQ) is a cinematic tract by socially engaged filmmaker Gilles Groulx. Propped against the backdrop of the 1970 October Crisis, the film is a frontal assault denouncing a “consumer society” viewed as the ultimate embodiment of evil. (NFB)
