Cinéma Public and Les petites productions join forces to present three film evenings hosted by renowned Montreal authors: Olivia Tapiero, Alain Farah and Daphné B. These three evenings are an opportunity to immerse yourself in the cinematic lives of these key figures in the literary world. Olivia Tapiero has selected two films made from scraps of other films, residues used to comment obliquely on the ravages of the West. Alain Farah offers a commentary on the society of over-consumption and its link to the current environmental and social crisis. Daphné B. focuses on self-representation, a form of orchestrated “naiveté” and the codes of femininity.
The poster was designed by Walter Scott.
