    Canada's Top Ten Film Festival – Old Stone
    Auditorium

    As part of our partnership with the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), join us for the screening of Old Stone by filmmaker Johnny Ma, followed by an onstage conversation with special guests.

    About the movie

    For taxi driver Lao Shi, every day of work is a fight for his family’s basic economic survival. One day, he accidentally hits a motorcyclist. Lao drives the injured man to the hospital himself, only to discover that he’s now legally responsible for the medical bills. Ma’s film begins as a carefully observed social-realist drama and turns into a furious, bloody noir that takes us out of the city and onto the dark roads at its outskirts.

    Canada's Top Ten Film Festival – Nelly
    Auditorium

    As part of our partnership with the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), join us for the screening of Nelly by filmmaker Anne Émond, followed by an onstage conversation with special guests.

    About the movie

    One of the most controversial writers in Quebec history, Nelly Arcan published Putain in 2001, causing a sensation in literary circles with a tale of prostitution based on her own experience in the trade. But with the success of that debut novel came crushing anxieties, all of which found their way into her work. Émond writes the onscreen Nelly as a composite of Arcan’s many personas and her fictional characters, brought to life in an astounding, kaleidoscopic performance by Mylène Mackay.
