Event Description

Alongside the Bubbles exhibition, two films will be screened back-to-back at the Spadina Theatre:

 

A pleine voix : 

 

Saïda Ouchaou Ozarowski

 

Muslim women disturb, intrigue and polarize, trapped in a straitjacket forged by an amalgam of front-page stories. While the media like to portray them as submissive and silenced, director Saïda Ouchaou-Ozarowski preferred to distance herself from this caricatured image, with which she does not identify. She went to meet six Canadian women of the Muslim faith, ready to discuss what has shaped their identity. The documentary À pleine voix takes an intimate look at the journeys of these women, all of whom share a common desire to share their vision of Islam.

As the film progresses, we see that the protagonists not only challenge our perceptions of these too-often stigmatized communities, but demonstrate that beyond our differences, we are all in search of freedom and fairness.

 

 

Moun An Ba La

 

Katia Café Fébrissy

 

This hybrid documentary combines cinéma vérité and ethereal experimental narrative to explore the question "Where do I belong?" through the prism of modern black immigration. In the film, we witness an intimate conversation between a French-speaking mother-to-be of Martinican descent based in Toronto and the filmmaker, during which the young woman makes sense of her identity after becoming a Canadian citizen, while delving deeper into what community means. Moved by a host of emotions she hadn't anticipated during the shoot, the filmmaker responds to what this film has awakened in her, through a visual poem she recounts, sometimes in French, sometimes in Creole, in which she reflects on her own identity and sense of place, as a Canadian of Guadeloupean origin born in France.

 

The screening will be followed by a discussion with the directors, co-hosted by Kama-Laure Kaba and Bruno Boëz.
