    In filmmaker Sébastien Chabot’s feature debut, influential gardener and horticulturalist Frank Cabot recounts his personal quest for perfection at Les Quatre Vents, his twenty-acre English style garden and summer estate that was opened to a film crew for the first time ever, shortly before his passing at the age of 86.

    Nestled amongst the rolling hills of the Charlevoix County in Quebec, Les Quatre Vents has become one of the world’s foremost private gardens. Created over three generations, it is an enchanted place of beauty and surprise, a horticultural masterpiece of the 21st century.

    Through interviews with Cabot, and admirers such as former Governor General Adrienne Clarkson, the film highlights his extraordinary scope and vision. Beautiful cinematography invites one to stroll Cabot’s gardens and explore different worlds crafted out of trees and hedges. This poetic documentary, set to Luc St. Pierre’s evocative classical soundtrack featuring some of Frank Cabot’s favourite pieces by Saint-Saëns, Schubert, Schumann, Bach and Mendelssohn, shows the harmonious relationship between people and nature and offers a compelling call for preservation.

    The Gardener is a documentary reflecting on the meaning of gardening and its impact on our lives.

    "Cabot’s garden is a wonder to behold. Through the lens of Chabot’s beautifully shot film, one gets a sense of the understated opulence, attention to detail, natural aesthetic instincts and cool dramatic flair which combined to make a visit to the premises a life-changing experience." (T’Cha Dunlevy, The Montreal Gazette)

    One of Canada’s most beloved animators, Ann Marie Fleming (The Magical Life of Long Tack Sam, Stories Sarah Tells, I was a Child of Holocaust Survivors) returns with an extraordinary tale of art, history and family, in this warm, witty animated feature about a young Canadian poet who undergoes a life-changing experience when she attends a poetry festival in Iran.

    Rosie is a young Canadian poet of Chinese and Persian descent who lives in Vancouver with her protective, but loving Chinese grandparents, and dreams of an artistic and glamorous Parisian life. When she receives an invitation to a poetry festival in Shiraz, Iran, she decides to embark on the trip that will change her life. Though Rosie has never travelled alone, she ends up meeting fellow artists from around the world and locals who open her eyes to the nature of art; they become guides to her own personal narrative, offering new perspectives on the story of a father she thought had abandoned her. Rosie’s time in Shiraz proves to be a transformative experience as she learns to ground herself by connecting with her own roots, both far and near.

    Voiced by an all-star cast that includes Canadian icons Sandra Oh, Ellen Page (The Tracy Fragments) and Don McKellar (Cooking with Stella), the characters display the intelligence and humour typical of Fleming’s work. The film seamlessly integrates different animation styles to express Rosie’s diverse experiences, and audiences marvel at the richness of this world with the same wide-eyed wonder as Rosie. One of the most magical things about Window Horses is the way that each sentence, idea, or scrap of history comes to life in colourful and graceful ways, flowering into a poetic universe all its own.

    "An entertaining, educational, and poignant tale about identify and imagination that is filled with stories and poetry." (Alissa Simon, Variety)

    "This is not just a visual treat, it's a rewarding and unexpectedly engrossing piece of female-led storytelling." (Wendy Ide, Screen International)

    The late Andrzej Wajda's Afterimage is a masterpiece in a career marked by many illustrious films.

    The 90-year-old director's work had lost none of its force of outrage over the years, but this film carries extra resonance in light of the contemporary situation in Poland, even though the film is set in the dark days of Soviet communist rule. Based on the life of the avant-garde artist Wladyslaw Strzeminski (brilliantly played by Polish superstar Boguslaw Linda), it blazes with energy, passion, and controlled fury as it follows the life of a man who refuses to bend to official ideology, even when it threatens his very existence.

    Strzeminski was a compelling and charismatic artist and teacher. Wajda picks up his story in postwar Lodz, where he teaches at the Higher School of Plastic Arts. His ideas, set out in a revolutionary book he has written about art, run headlong into Stalin's dictates on what is good for the masses: social realism and superficial positivism. This is the dynamic that feeds Afterimage's utterly compelling narrative about a highly principled individual who confronts the indifference and, soon enough, anger of the authorities determined to stamp out anyone who questions the party line. A double amputee, Strzeminski is a restless force of nature idolized by the younger generation and the students he teaches.

    Boguslaw Linda brilliantly bulls his way through his role as the beleaguered artist who refuses to compromise, and he dominates the film, but Wajda gives him superb foils: his long-suffering young daughter whose life is equally affected by her father's decisions and an attractive young student whose emotions move from admiration to desire.

    This is a firecracker of a film—angry, committed, and deeply connected to the painful decisions that its brave subject is forced to make in order to retain his integrity.

    "Led by a powerful and quietly resilient performance by Linda, Afterimage may not contain everything Wajda has said or wish to have said, however it is a moving tribute to a career marred by personal and national trauma, and one of the year's best pictures." (John Fink, The Film Stage)

    "Afterimage is mounted in a classical, beautifully understated style that throughout conveys the relaxed assurance of a true master. It's one of those films that doesn't ask to be liked or admired, but only to be heard." (Godfrey Cheshire, RogerEbert.com)

    When unarmed teenager Michael Brown is killed by police and left lying in the street for hours, it marks a breaking point for the residents of Ferguson, a small suburb of St. Louis, Missouri. Grief, long-standing racial tensions and renewed anger bring residents together to hold vigil and protest this latest tragedy.

    In the days that follow, artists, musicians, teachers and parents turn into freedom fighters, demanding justice. When the National Guard descends on Ferguson with military grade weaponry, these community members become the torchbearers of a new resistance. For this generation, the battle is not for civil rights, but for the right to live.

    Filmmakers Sabaah Folayan and Damon Davis know this story because they are the story. Their documentary is and unflinching look at the Ferguson uprising and a vibrant firsthand portrait of the origins of the Black Lives Matter movement. Its images are not leaked by law enforcement or stage-managed for the media, but come directly from the people who lived through the violent events of 2014. "Return to your homes!" police shout from atop their tanks. "We are home!" a beyond frustrated civilian calls back. Whose Streets? depicts injustices that have always beleaguered the African-American community, but this is a film that could only have been made now.

    "Directors and activists Sabaah Folyan and Damon Davis’s outstanding and incendiary documentary about Ferguson does a tremendous end run around mainstream news outlets and the agenda-driven narratives that emerge, particularly on television." (Jordan Hoffman, The Guardian)

    "Raw and unadorned, Whose Streets? is a documentary in the truest sense of the word; an actual moving document of events fresh in the country's memory, but never before laid as bare as they are here." (Jude Dry, Indiewire)

    In the latest film from celebrated Japanese auteur Hirokazu Kore-eda (Like Father, Like Son; Our Little Sister), a divorced man struggles to regain his estranged family’s trust while sheltering them during a typhoon. After the Storm recalls the beauty of scenery after a summer rain and the feeling that everything seems different, even though nothing has changed.

    Ryota (Hiroshi Abe) is a failed writer, third-rate detective and hardened gambler. As the film’s title seems to suggest, the salient moments of Ryota’s life have already passed him by: he won an important literary award when he was young but his career is no longer promising; his father has died and his wife has left him; and he adores his young son, yet seems resigned to his position on the sidelines of the boy’s life. One night, when a typhoon strikes, the broken family is forced to spend the night together at Ryota’s mother’s home. The ensuing interaction, free of melodrama and forced catharsis, is bittersweet and tender in true Kore-eda style.

    Followers of Kore-eda’s body of work will recognize many of the themes at play here, such as the attempt to find harmony in a community and the traumatic impact of divorce on a child’s life. Shot in a housing complex where the director lived as a child, the film is supported by an exceptional cast featuring an unusually irreverent Kirin Kiki (Our Little Sister; Like Father, Like Son) as Ryota’s mother. Gentle and melancholy, yet highly amusing, After the Storm shows the lighter side of Kore-eda’s cinema, and makes a welcome addition to his complex and fascinating filmography.

    "This is Kore-eda at his very best, facing up to the hardest truths with honesty and a nervous laugh—uncomfortable, invigorating, and ultimately cleansing, like the cinema’s equivalent of a cold shower. And I mean that in the best way possible." (Rory O'Connor, The Film Stage)

    "No director working today observes family life with such delicacy and care, or is so unstintingly generous with what they find." (Robbie Collin, The Telegraph)

    100 Short Stories is acclaimed Nova Scotian filmmaker Neal Livingston's first feature-length documentary.

    In an original, engaging and often humorous exploration of energy policy, governance and regional policy, Livingston interweaves tales of predatory capitalism, eco-activism and contemporary life in Atlantic Canada.

    The film presents a first-person account of a year-long struggle to develop Black River Wind, a renewable energy project, and to overcome an attempted hostile takeover. Meanwhile, the local citizens of Inverness County band together to defeat oil and gas drilling and fracking coming to Cape Breton Island.

    100 Short Stories won the 2017 Energy Award at the Cinema Verde Film Festival in Gainesville, Florida.

    The screening will be followed by a Q&A and Neal Livingston will be in attendance.

    In the aftermath of World War I, a young German woman mourning the death of her fiancé Frantz, forms a bond with a mysterious Frenchman visiting her beloved’s grave.

    The war has just ended and Anna (Paula Beer) is still living with Frantz’s parents, who are shattered over their son’s death. Meanwhile, the citizens of Anna’s small German town are just beginning to emerge from the shadow of the war. Spying a stranger laying a bouquet of roses on Frantz’s grave one day, the quietly grieving Anna is both surprised and intrigued. Hesitantly, the visitor reveals he is a French soldier, but with the horrors of the war still so raw in everyone’s minds, the small community makes it clear he is not welcome among them.

    Adrien (Pierre Niney, The Snows of Kilimanjaro) soon reveals he knew Frantz prior to the war, as the two became fast friends over their shared love of art and music. Anna and Frantz’s parents eventually warm to the sensitive Frenchman, grateful for the chance to relive a connection to Frantz. But despite Adrien’s initial charms, his past slowly reveals itself to be more mysterious and murky than it seems.

    Telling a familiar tale of love, remembrance, grief, and mourning in new and surprising ways, Frantz is a brilliant addition to the filmography of François Ozon (Potiche). Shot equally in Germany and France, and in both languages, it is an elegant, beautifully rendered, mostly black-and-white elegy to a lost generation and the legacy it left.

    "This new film is exceptional and one of Ozon's best." (Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle)

    [Frantz] continues the filmmaker’s long line of complex female heroines and explores many themes dear to Ozon, including mourning and the refuge fiction and/or art can offer in times of crisis. And as usual, the actors are all in fine form.” (Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter)

    "It is a cunningly crafted fiction, full of visual artifice and narrative sleight-of-hand, that by the end could hardly feel more sincere." (Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times)

    Jane Jacobs, author of The Death and Life of Great American Cities, helped change the way we look at urban living. Her writing and activism had a direct impact on neighbourhoods in Manhattan and Toronto, and influenced city planners all over the world.

    Now, in the centenary of her birth, Citizen Jane focuses on Jacobs' most dramatic battles in the 1960s: when she went up against New York City's most ruthless power broker, Robert Moses. At stake was whether the city's historic neighbourhoods of Greenwich Village, Soho, and Little Italy would stay intact or be split apart by expressways.

    Filmmaker Matt Tyrnauer takes us into the heyday of magazine journalism, a male-dominated world where Jacobs excelled while raising a family. Despite her lack of a college degree, she immersed herself into the world of urban planning and became an outspoken critic of its leading trends. While developers like Moses focused on automobiles and expressways, Jacobs championed sidewalks and foot traffic.

    Moses amassed immense political power in the innocuous-sounding position of New York City Parks Commissioner. By personal fiat, he leveled neighbourhoods to build the Cross Bronx Expressway and other massive projects.

    Tyrnauer chronicles how Jacobs marshaled a movement against Moses, when he sought to push through the Lower Manhattan Expressway that would demolish blocks and displace thousands. Afterwards, Jacobs moved to Toronto where she joined the effort to stop the Spadina Expressway and lived for almost four decades.

    This inspirational documentary delivers a timely lesson in the power of the people to push back against bullying developers.

    "As a history of this war of ideas and as an introduction to Jacobs, the film is essential. But it also pivots toward a great challenge: today's global urbanization. [A] gorgeous, tightly written and entertaining film." (Alex Bozilovic, The Globe and Mail)

    "Jacobs argued that what looks to officialdom like disorder is actually what makes a crowded human landscape function—it's just a more complex order. This compelling documentary lets you see the beauty she found in that complexity." (Bob Mondello, NPR)
