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!

Film "Arab Blues"
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!
