RIDM Week 2: three new sections!

News

We're starting this second week of the festival with a new selection of documentaries to explore at home! The sections Contemplating DystopiaBecoming Oneself and Challenging Power (presented in collaboration with the CSN) are now available for viewing on the festival’s online platform and will remain accessible until November 25. The sections Redefining Intimacy (presented in collaboration with Cinemania) and Surviving Violence, available from November 26 to December 2, will complete our 23rd edition.

 

CONTEMPLATING DYSTOPIA – available from November 19 to 25

These 12 films explore the strangeness in our world. From an unlikely road movie with the spokesman for a death cult to imagining the planet without people, from futuristic architecture to multiple nocturnal odysseys, these are creative films that put our reality in perspective.

 

BECOMING ONESELF – available from November 19 to 25

12 portraits and self-portraits about how we relate to the world: inspiring and poetic existential quests that affirm multiple definitions of self.

 

CHALLENGING POWER – available from November 19 to 25

These 12 films run the gamut from activist to experimental film, but they all confront current and past injustices, and pay tribute to brave, stalwart figures of resistance. Presented in collaboration with the CSN - Confédération des syndicats nationaux.
