Family Motel
lundi 19 septembre à 19 h

Anyan est une forte tête réfugiée somalienne vivant au Canada avec ses deux filles. Elle est déterminée à bâtir une bonne vie pour sa famille. Cependant, sa vie sombre un peu plus  lorsqu'elle est expulsée et forcée de déménager dans un motel familial situé dans un quartier peu recommandable. Entre un travail exigeant et l'influence négative qu’exerce le nouveau voisinage sur ses filles, Anyan vient bien près de perdre tout ce qui lui tient à cœur. Une discussion dirigée par la réalisatrice Helene Klodawsky suivra. Il est classé 14A (thème mature). Le film est présenté en anglais. 87 minutes. 105 sièges. Premier arrivé, premier servi.

Organizer:Lisa MacNeil
