  • Bright Lights: Balagan presents Outre Montreal

    9/18/14
    7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    Montreal continues to be a source of innovative experimental cinema that is rooted in hands-on, formally adventurous production -- thanks, in part, to the exuberant activities of the Double Negative filmmakers' collective. Co-presented with Balagan Films, this program highlights a number of works from DN members and their friends completed in the last several years.

    Guest Filmmakers Daïchi Saïto and Eduardo Menz will discuss the screening with the audience in a post-screening Q&A.

    Program (Total running time: 74 min)

    Mamori
    by Karl Lemieux
    35mm / black and white / Dolby SR / 8 min. / 2010 / Canada
    Projection Format: 35mm (1.37:1)
    At the invitation of Spanish composer Francisco Lopez, Lemieux took part in a creative residency at Lopez's Mamori ArtLab, where sound artists compose from field recordings. Lemieux tried to capture the textures of tropical vegetation and its various transformations according to the phenomena of light.

    Cronograma de un tiempo inexistente (Chronogram of Inexistent Time)
    by Malena Szlam
    35mm, HD / color / silent / 6 min. / 2008 / Canada
    Projection Format: QuickTime Prores 422
    A photomontage composed of 35mm still photos, Chronogram of Inexistent Time is a journey to restore sight, reflecting on the role our memory can play in the reconstitution of what is visible and invisible.

    Lunar Almanac
    by Malena Szlam
    16mm / color / silent / 4 min. / 2013 / Canada
    Projection Format: 16mm (24fps)

    Pilgrimage
    by Marc Pelletier
    16mm / color / optical mono / 9 min. / 2011 / Canada
    Projection Format: 16mm
    A simple walk in the park can become a spiritual experience, a moment of discovery, a pilgrimage. This film explores the meditative nighttime allure of the Park Lafontaine, Montreal, turning this public space into an abstract form of sanctuary.

    Brouillard
    by Alexandre Larose
    35mm / color / silent / 6:30 min. / 2012 / Canada
    Projection Format: 35mm (1.37:1, 24fps)
    A path that extends from my family's backyard into Lac Saint-Charles in Québec City, condensed in multiple temporal layers.

    Las Mujeres de Pinochet (Pinochet's Women)
    by Eduardo Menz
    DV / color / sound / 12 min. / 2005 / Canada
    Projection Format: QuickTime Prores 422
    Through the repetition and alteration of image, sound and text that play on viewer's expectations, Pinochet's Women examines class structure, the meaning of beauty and forgotten history through two very different but significant women during Pinochet's brutal regime of the late 1980s in Chile.

    Acrobat
    by Eduardo Menz
    16mm, HD / color / Dolby 5.1 / 28 min. / 2012 / Canada
    Projection Format: QuickTime Prores 422
    The vulnerability of alienated individuals who desperately desire to be noticed and crave for genuine human connection, is exposed as odd and intimate scenes of voyeuristic fantasy, impersonating intangibility, romantic longing, sexual confusion, and liberating daydreams.

    This screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Michael Cuesta (L.I.E., Dexter, Homeland and Elementary)

Webb stumbles onto a story which leads to the shady origins of the men who started the crack epidemic on the nation's streets...and further alleges that the CIA was aware of major dealers who were smuggling cocaine into the U.S., and using the profits to arm rebels fighting in Nicaragua. Despite warnings from drug kingpins and CIA operatives to stop his investigation, Webb keeps digging to uncover a conspiracy with explosive implications. His journey takes him from the prisons of California to the villages of Nicaragua to the highest corridors of power in Washington, D.C. - and draws the kind of attention that threatens not just his career, but his family and his life.
