Here’s your shot to win a pair of tickets to see MDFF Presents Still Night, Still Light at The Royal Cinema…
Screening Information: Wednesday April 5th-8pm-The Royal Cinema-Toronto
Brief Description: Quebec filmmaker Sophie Goyette has created five acclaimed short films which have played at Sundance, Locarno and TIFF. She recently finished a beautiful, deeply poetic first feature. In Quebec, Mexico and Asia, three souls – Eliane, Romes, Pablo are haunted by the day and night. Goyette beckons us on a sensory journey where travel, art, dream, and memory serve as mileposts. Her film blurs the boundary that separates night from day. As she follows the three characters’ journey the filmmaker directs our gaze to the magic that seeps from the cracks in daily life. In doing so, she raises universal questions about being human, about what binds us to each other and to reality. Still Night, Still Light is a bottle that Eliane, Romes or Pablo might have cast adrift: within it, a loving tribute to cinema and its ability to bring back to us what has ceased to be.
