5 RIDM films on La Fabrique culturelle

The Montreal International Documentary Festival (RIDM) are back on La Fabrique culturelle !

 

From September 14 to 28, 2020, discover - again - five outstanding short documentaries, with a sensitive and human approach, from the last edition of the RIDM :

 

Terres fantômes by Félix Lamarche

An experimental approach, with ghostly and atemporal elements, gives substance to recollections of a disturbing but largely forgotten episode in the history of Gaspésie.

 

No Crying at the Dinner Table by Carol Nguyen

Setting her camera on the kitchen table, the filmmaker lets her father, mother and sister speak. Memories, regrets and secrets slowly emerge, with tact and gentleness.

 

Small Trophies by Isabelle Grignon-Francke

A sensitive portrait of Marie and Gabriel, who are both in their 20s and have Down syndrome. Each day brings fresh challenges and triumphs as these young adults pursue their hopes and dreams. 

 

Unfamiliar Fields by Charles Duquet

Liliane decides to move to a nursing home to care for her husband, who is slowly losing his sense of self. A touching voyage into the unpredictable world of aging.

 

One sea, 10 seas by Nour Ouayda

An original narrative with three voices looking back on the recording of a seaside landscape in Beirut. Images, sounds and words enter a dialogue, the better to capture cinematic flourishes.
