IN PERSON: director François Girard and producer Roger Frappier.
Q & A with The Hollywood Reporter’s Shannon Bowen.
Reception follows in the lobby for all ticket buyers.
François Girard, one of Canada’s most accomplished filmmakers, has tackled histories and epic narratives before in Thirty Two Short Films About Glenn Gould, The Red Violin, and Silk. His new film offers a kaleidoscopic take on history that prompts timely reflection on the role of origin, identity, and place in shaping the soul of a nation.
