'Je me souviens,' Italian-Style: Italian-Canadian Experience in Quebec
March 10, 2011 until April 9, 2011

Presented in collaboration with the Dante Alighieri Society of Ottawa, these two evenings offer both dramatic and non-fictional explorations of the remarkably vital, sometimes troubled Italian-Canadian experience in Quebec. Including films by some of Canada’s finest filmmakers, this programme examines, poetically and provocatively, themes of memory and identity. These works also investigate, in surprising ways, the role of the moving image itself as an agent of both cultural expression and cultural preservation.
