Max Lincoln ‘Thyme’
A story about escape, cooking and thyme.

Fred Rowson ‘Woodhouse’
The Woodhouse Nature Reserve, South East London. It’s a sprawling hectare of knotted ivy and mossy tree stumps. And while its edges are speckled with rusting tins and damp takeaway boxes, its interior is verdant, untouched. There, beyond the padlocked gates some thing, some creature is living.

Noelle Rodrigues ‘Open My Eyes’
The psychological journey of a girl who must confront her traumatic childhood. Emotions and memories resurface with brutal and challenging consequences.

The Last Skeptik- ‘Cheerio’
Taken from The Last Skeptik’s recent e.p entitled ‘I Don’t Even Like You’ the video for ‘Cheerio’ stars comedian / actor Doc Brown unravelling behind a mask in a video exploring the perils of drugs, booze, parties in an attempt to avoid reality.

Ken Petrie ‘Bucket’
After a devastating discovery at a fancy dress party, a young man contemplates suicide before an abandoned baby catches his eye and shakes him from his ill intent. Now, faced with taking care of it until the police arrive, he recruits his former best friend – but things are far from simple.

Simone Smith ‘Red’
A psychological hue which resembles that of blood evoked in the human observer.

Tim Bonner ‘Under A Vest’
As darkness falls across the city, a blonde with a gun investigates a noise – but all is not what it seems…

Mark Brown & Phil Haine ‘Somebody To Love’
‘If you are a psychological horror fan you should seek this out’ – Twisted Central

Ben Garfield ‘The Players’

Québec Cinema Showcase @ Cine Lumieré / Friday 2nd November – Sunday 4th November 2012


5 Screenings at various times

@ Cine Lumiere
17 Queensberry Place
South Kensington, SW7 2DT

Tickets £10 / £8 concessions from the Institut Français website

Following the international success of Québécois films including Monsieur Lazhar, Incendies and Café de Flore, a showcase of new cinema from Québec will take place for the first time in London at the Institut Français. Cine Lumieré hosts five feature films over three days, all of which are preceeded by short films.

Opening the showcase on Friday is Starbuck, the UK premiere of Ken Scott’s box-office success. Just when David Wosniak (Patrick Huard) decides to finally take control of his life, this eternal 42 year-old teenager discovers that he’s the biological father of 533 children. Suddenly, his life is much more complicated than he anticipated.

Saturday opens with Karakara, a Canadian/Japanese co-production which follows Pierre (Gabriel Arcand), a retired professor in his early sixties who goes on a short, unsettling trip around Okinawa in Japan with Junko (Youki Kudoh), a 40-year-old runaway wife.

A highlight of the showcase will be Saturday evening’s public reception, with free drinks of Neige (apple ice wine) followed by a screening of Laurence Anyways, the latest offering from Cannes award-winning director Xavier Dolan (I Killed My Mother, Heartbeats). In the 90s, Laurence tells his girlfriend Fred that he wants to become a woman. The film spans 10 years, an epic journey which, unbeknownst to them, may cost Fred and Laurence their love.

Sunday films are Bestiary (Bestiaire) from Denis Côté, an intriguing documentary without dialogue, which reflects on human fascination with animals and  Behind Closed Doors (Catimini) from Nathalie Saint-Pierre. The final film of the weekend, it is a touching story about a reunion between four girls living under the care of the child protection services.
