HOCHELAGA, LAND OF SOULS
TERRE DES ÂMES
2017, 100 min, Canada, Dir: François Girard

After a tremendous downpour hits Montreal, a huge sinkhole opens up in Percival-Molson Stadium during a football game. The stadium is evacuated and becomes a protected archaeological site, revealing centuries of history beneath the field. Mohawk archaeologist Baptiste Asigny (Samian) discovers a multitude of generations who have occupied the land, each with buried secrets, as he sets out to find what he’s sought his entire career: the vestiges of the village of Hochelaga where his Iroquoian ancestors met French explorer Jacques Cartier in October 1535. The impressive cast includes Vincent Perez, Wahiakeron Gilbert, Raoul Trujillo, Sébastien Ricard and Siân Phillips.


PUPPYLOVE
2013, 85 min, Belgium, Dir: Delphine Lehericey

Fourteen years old and sort of an outsider, Diane (a marvelous Solène Rigot) is beginning to explore sexuality. She gets no guidance from single dad Christian (Vincent Perez), so when English teen Julia (Audrey Bastien) moves in to her apartment building, Diane gains a confidante. But the promiscuous Julia has few limits, and draws Diane into increasingly risky behavior. In French with English subtitles.
