Cinépistolaire, an original creation

Ten Canadian filmmakers. Five filmed correspondences. Cinéma Public is proud to present Cinépistolaire, our very first original creation. From these exchanges of filmed letters, a unique cinematic space is born, where each person’s voice and gaze simultaneously listen to the other and unveil the self.

Celles qui luttent
