June 11: screening followed by a discussion with the filmmaker Denis Côté and the artist Lou Scamble as part of the exhibition ToHkyo?! – Variants d’Hygiène sociale

Antonin, a talker and a schemer, is torn by his need to be in society and a desire to stay away from it. He becomes entangled as he confronts five surrounding women: his sister, his wife, his eventual mistress, a tax collector, and a student he robbed. In Hygiène Sociale, Denis Côté places his characters in fields, motionless, reading their lines in a fully assumed theatrical tone. Playing with the limits of cinema itself, Côté’s unique and creative voice will challenge audiences, inspiring everything but indifference.
