THE FILMS OF DENIS CÔTÉ
October 19 – October 25
Denis Côté will be here in person for both shows on Friday, Oct 19, and for the 7:00 & 9:00 shows on Saturday, Oct 20!
Alongside our week-long run of his new feature, BESTIAIRE (click here), we present a retrospective devoted to the films of Denis Côté, one of the most gifted of contemporary Canadian filmmakers. A director who has resisted easy categorization, Côté has created a body of work that seems constantly to be reinventing itself, striking out boldly in new directions. Demonstrating different approaches to storytelling and tone, and moving freely from fiction to nonfiction, as well as exploring the porous border between them, Côté’s films are unified above all by their perceptiveness, patience, and visual beauty. We are thrilled to present screenings of all his feature films, providing an opportunity to experience the full range of his work.
This program was realized with the generous support of the Société de développement des entreprises culturelles (SODEC) and the Québec Government Office in New York; very special thanks to Anne-Lyse Haket (SODEC) and Jean-Pierre Dion (Québec Government Office).
