LIVE CINEMA PERFORMANCE & ELECTRONICS

FRI, MAR 20 / 9 pm
with filmmaker Karl Lemieux and musicians Roger Tellier-Craig & Jonathan Parant
FREE ADMISSION!

Quebec filmmaker Karl Lemieux is dedicated to cinematographic art, pushing it beyond its accepted technical limitations, injecting unbridled life into 16 mm film, which he burns, paints and tears. A fascinating experiment, with a heterogeneous musical background performed live by accompanying musicians Roger Tellier-Craig and Jonathan Parant. While surrounded by his projectors, the artist reconstructs images with remarkable skill.

“Karl Lemieux’s incredible, emotionally complex, multi-projector performances collaborations stole the show, blending intense chamber-style music and violently affected and burnt film loops.” – Brett Kashmere

Les Rendez-vous du cinéma québécois (RVCQ) has been promoting French-language cinema for 26 years, both in Canada and internationally, by presenting a ten-day long, annual film festival presenting the broad scope of francophone cinema to a wide audience, including feature-length and short films, documentary and fictional, art and experimental works, and premieres and retrospectives of the last year’s productions.

The festival provides an opportunity for the general public to meet with people working in the film industry, supplementing film screenings with evening discussion sessions, exhibitions and celebrations. The Festival is touring across the country to promote the art of French cinema and is in Winnipeg for a special two day visit.
