Letters, messages, confessions, poems, diaries... Frida Kahlo wrote herself as she painted herself. During a show with the appearance of a fiesta, mariachi in support, Sophie Faucher plunges head first into the literary and musical universe of this woman of genius, an outstanding figure of Mexican painting. Her writings, unlike her paintings, were not intended for the general public. I will always write to you with my eyes," she said. This is an intimate look at the life of Frida, painter, Frida wounded in her body, Frida activist, Frida in love with beings and words.
Frida Kahlo - Correspondence was produced for the very first time by the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec on the occasion of the exhibition Au Pays des merveilles: Les aventures surréalistes des femmes artistes au Mexique et aux États-Unis.

With Paul Mescal and Frankie Corio
At a fading vacation resort, 11-year-old Sophie treasures rare time together with her loving and idealistic father, Calum (Paul Mescal). As a world of adolescence creeps into view, beyond her eye Calum struggles under the weight of life outside of fatherhood. Twenty years later, Sophie's tender recollections of their last holiday become a powerful and heartrending portrait of their relationship, as she tries to reconcile the father she knew with the man she didn't, in Charlotte Wells' superb and searingly emotional debut film.

Infinithéâtre brings audiences a live-action puppet version of Chester Brown's seminal work, Louis Riel : A Comic-Strip Biography. A salute to Brown's artistry, the puppets are right off the page eerily naïve but remarkably evocative. This epic tale steams through early Canadian history, revealing a rugged and treacherous landscape both in life and politics. In this intrepid and irreverent look at some of our nation's founders, Louis Riel : A Comic-Strip Stage Play is part adventure story, part history lesson, and a completely fascinating theatrical event.
