Canada’s Oscar submission is an intelligent, moving reworking of Sophocles’ tragedy, electrified by a breakout turn from star Nahéma Ricci. The clever screenplay injects these ancient archetypes directly into the bloodstream of the modern-day immigration debate – make sure to stay after the screening to ask all your questions to the director!
« By helping her brother escape from prison, Antigone confronts the authorities: the police, the judicial and penal system as well as the father of her friend Haemon. The brilliant teenage girl, on a spotless path so far, feels the noose tighten on her. But to man’s law, she substitutes her own sense of justice, dictated by love and loyalty. » – Synopsis
« Philosophically compelling and emotionally devastating, Deraspe crafts a unique and contemporary cinematic experience that resonates deeply. » Globe and Mail
« Deraspe earns kudos for making a 2,500-year-old play feel vital, contemporary and cinematic. » Hollywood Reporter

Select « Antigone », Lost in Frenchlation if you are in France or Cinéma Galeries if you are in Belgium, and the March 8th session.
As this is a local e-cinema platform and not a streaming platform, you will be asked to geolocate yourself, in order to respect the platform’s charter which limits the radius to France and Belgium only. Once you have purchased your e-ticket, you will receive a connection link by email and all you will have to do is connect on the day of the screening, a few minutes before the start of the film.
Deraspe’s ‘Antigone’ is striking, powerful and relevant. It encourages and challenges us to reflect on the position and treatment of immigrants in contemporary society.
