What We Choose To Remember

Friday, May 13

What We Choose To Remember: World Premiere. Opening Film. (documentary) (history) 94 min. (live) (stream)

Quebec is different.  Bilingual youth experience it differently than seniors born in the era of two solitudes. Immigrants are attracted to Quebec’s European joie de vivre, while Québécois living in the regions increasingly see Montreal as a foreign metropolis. Featuring a cast of more than 30 characters whose families arrived in successive waves of immigration from 1760 to the 21st century, What We Choose To Remember explores the things that make Quebec so fascinating, frustrating and endearingly different.

Introduced by writer-director Guy Rex Rodgers, Guests, Q&A and Reception
