Space Rituals – Five Cultures, Five Rituals: In this symbolic and social space, participants will discover the diversity of funerary rituals from one continent to another. A special nod to the evolution of rites in Quebec through the story of Urgel Bourgie.
The comedy drama EMMA PEETERS, directed by Nicole Palo hits theaters at the currently running CINEMANIA festival:
Struggling Parisian actress Emma Peeters has to face the facts: she will never gain success on the silver screen. After a series of failures she decides to take matters into her own hands and commit suicide on her 35th birthday. However an encounter with Alex, a funeral home employee, just might be the light at the end of her tunnel…
Starring Andréa Ferréol, Monia Chokri and Fabrice Adde this story definitely has a dark overall theme, however director Palo manages to keep you laughing throughout the entire film and make you reflect on the quality and value of your own life.
