Le Messager Lachine & Dorval - - LOCAL NEWS -

ARTS. For 20 years the Mon­treal In­ter­na­tio­nal Do­cu­men­ta­ry Fes­ti­val has brought au­diences rea­li­ty-ba­sed ci­ne­ma from around the world. Crea­ted by lo­cal and in­ter­na­tio­nal in­de­pendent film­ma­kers, they have of­fe­red unique points of view that have ope­ned the doors to dia­logue and awa­re­ness about the is­sues of the day.

As the RIDM was born in Mon­treal, the ci­ty is a vi­tal part of the fes­ti­val’s iden­ti­ty. In ce­le­bra­tion, land­mark films from past edi­tions will be shown for free eve­ry night du­ring the fes­ti­val in unique ve­nues all over Mon­treal.

On Thurs­day, No­vem­ber 16, the film Mo­hawk Girls by Tra­cey Deer will be scree­ned at the Saul Bel­low Li­bra­ry (3100, Saint-an­toine Street). It is a per­so­nal look at the lives of young girls from Kah­na­wake and a film that laun­ched Tra­cy Deer’s ca­reer. She has mo­ved on to adapt the film in­to a suc­cess­ful fic­tio­nal TV se­ries. The film will be shown in the La­chine so­cial and cul­tu­ral hub to re­flect uni­ty among com­mu­ni­ties. The RIDM runs for ten days from No­vem­ber 9 to 19. (DC)
