Why did we chose this film? 

Intelligent, touching and full of hope... You might have heard of the very popular Step by Step in the past few years. Be ready to go very fast from tears to laughters, or from empathy to incomprehension. Step by Step is a movie that will stay with you for a few days. A movie you'll keep thinking about after watching it. In a nutshell, a movie we highly recommend you!

Synopsis:

Following a serious accident in a swimming pool, Ben, who has become a quadriplegic, arrives in a rehabilitation center. He meets others with dissabilites (quadriplegics, paraplegics, head trauma...) all victims of accidents, as well as a person with dissability since childhood. Between helplessness, despair and resignation, in the daily struggle to relearn how to move a finger or hold a fork, some slowly regain some mobility while others recieve the verdict of life long dissability. Despite everything, hope and friendship help them endure their difficulties.

In partnership with the Alliance française d'Ottawa | online | 1h 29min | drama, comedy

After 10 years of living in Paris, Selma has returned to Tunis. Back home, her younger cousin can't figure out why she'd leave the French capital, her aunt is overbearing, and her uncle is only giving her a matter of weeks to crash in the apartment above their house. Selma, nonetheless, is steadfast in her resolve: she wants to open up a psychotherapy practice. So begins the first feature directed and written by Manele Labidi, an incisive comedy about coming home, breaking taboos, and building community. As Selma tries to settle in, she's faced with increasing complications that she couldn't have predicted. There isn't just the matter of finding interested psychotherapy patients in a locale that's not keen on the talking cure, but she also needs to navigate a confusing bureaucratic circus in order to get the right papers to run her practice. On top of all that, a strapping cop, Naim, is keeping a close eye on her every move.

RSVP by March 18th to watch it online for free!

After more than half a century of colonial cinema using Africa as an exotic setting, often in denial of the humanity and the dignity of its inhabitants, 70 years after the invention of cinema, Africans who have become independent, finally seize this too long prohibited camera. Despite the total lack of means and infrastructure, filming against the impossible by using any African or foreign support, they try to describe the realities of Africa in its multiplicity and diversity, finally seen through African eyes. Camera of Africa is the outcome of filming that lasted over ten years and narrates the story of the first 20 years of these new "Author's Cinemas" born in sub-Saharan Africa expressing the thirst to show and demonstrate unprecedented, not appeased to this day.
