Four films distributed by Vidéographe will be screened during the 16th edition of the Regard sur le court métrage au Saguenay.
On March 16 and 18 at 1:00 p.m., Jean-Guillaume Bastien’s Les Dimanches will be screened in official competition. This fiction film, winner of the FRAME award at the 2012 edition of Prends ça court!, describes three Sunday events in the almost surreal atmosphere of a small village in the Lower St. Lawrence region.
On March 17 at 1:00 p.m., also in official competition, Mlle Clara dompteuse de lapins, by D. Kimm and Brigitte Henry, will be shown. In this silent film from another era we follow the eventful life of Clara, born into a middle-class family who, following a magnetic storm, develops an unhealthy interest in rabbits.
Two films will be screened on March 18 at 3:00 p.m., in the category Mutation - films expérimentaux:
- Pierre Hébert’s Rivière au tonnerre takes the viewer an exercise in looking intensely at a rock face near the falls of the Rivière-au-tonnerre on the north shore of the St. Lawrence River.
- Migizi, by Louise Larivière and Tomi Grgicevic, tells the story of an unusual celebration held on February 23, 2009 on the 50th parallel, at the outer reaches of Canada. This short film won the NFB’s Innovation Award at the Rendez-vous du cinéma québécois 2011.
