On July 9, we lost one of the Quebec film community’s most inspiring and beloved figures. Through her documentaries and fictional films, Michka Saäl built a coherent body of work grounded in openness to the world, discovery of the other and a love of the arts. Michka was a great friend of the RIDM and was an integral part of the festival on many occasions. By way of tribute, this two-part celebration will invite friends, loved ones, colleagues and admirers to gather for an evening. Eulogies and live music will be followed by a screening of her film China Me (RIDM 2014).
Presented in collaboration with the Cinémathèque québécoise
