Retrospective: Animating Reality

Passages Marie-Josée Saint-Pierre

Film index A to Z

A nightmare narrative: the filmmaker giving birth at Saint-Luc Hospital in Montreal. Muted black and white and an exceptionally intense soundtrack ratchet up the emotion in a story of personal tragedy that becomes a fierce denunciation of an inhumane medical system.

Presented in collaboration with the Sommets du cinéma d'animation, the Cinémathèque québécoise, the Département d'histoire de l'art et d'études cinématographiques de l'Université de Montréal and the Observatoire du cinéma au Québec
