For the October CineFEEL, we chose a beautiful movie dealing with handicap and the impact it has in a family. Elisa, a 17 years old teenager wants to enjoy her summer in the Vercors region in France. But things won't go as planned : her mom breaks up with her dad , leaving them taking care of Marion, her disabled sister. That heavy responsability will change her life and challenge her feelings. Free entrance + pop corn !

Ciné/Feel returns in June with the screening of the movie Maestro. A refreshing and poetic comedy full of humour! Pio Marmai plays Henri, a young and ambitious actor finds himself involved in a auteur film. Charmed by an actress on the set, the filming does not quite go as he had planned.

France, 1969. Paul Coutard, 30, is a sports journalist. He is charming, childish and a womaniser. When he is forced to plan the newspaper’s fair together with Emmanuelle, the discreet and beautiful executive assistant, Paul has the crazy idea to organise a women’s football match for the first time.

CinéFeel : "Sans Maman"

For the International Day of Francophonie, Alliance française du Manitoba is happy to screen "Sans Maman", by Marie-France Guerrette, a franco-albertan filmmaker (who will be present for this occasion!)
On August 31, 1995, Guerrette's family life takes a dramatic turn. Mona, the mother, passes at 42 of the remnants of a breast cancer, leaving behind a husband and two daughters, Mylène and Marie-France, to which she bequeaths a tape containing the testimony of her life. How to recover, as a child, from the death of a parent? By recording her life, as well as her family's, Marie-France Guerrette welcomes us into her mourning. The archives, sometimes flawed or imprecise and filled with emotions, build the history of her family. Marked with authenticity, these interviews represent a freeing speech. Along her path, she discovers a heavy legacy: genetical cancer. This documentary has had many positive points on Marie-France's life - ease the mourning process, incitate a call for action, as well as anchoring her in the side of the livings.
