Kajillionaire
From acclaimed writer/director Miranda July comes a profoundly moving and wildly original comedy. Con-artists Theresa (Debra Winger) and Robert (Richard Jenkins) have spent 26 years training their only daughter, Old Dolio (Evan Rachel Wood), to swindle, scam, and steal at every opportunity. During a desperate, hastily conceived heist, they charm a stranger (Gina Rodriguez) into joining their next scam, only to have their entire world turned upside down.

Jazz on a Summer\'s Day (STF)
Filmed at the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival in Rhode Island and directed by world-renowned photographer, Bert Stern. JAZZ ON A SUMMER'S DAY features intimate performances by an all-star line-up of musical legends including Louis Armstrong, Thelonius Monk, Gerry Mulligan, Anita O'Day, Chuck Berry, Dinah Washington, and closes with a beautiful rendition of "The Lord's Prayer" by Mahalia Jackson at midnight to usher in Sunday morning.

La Dernière plongée de Dave (STF)
Two high level scuba-divers and long-time friends, Don and Dave, broke a world record for depth in the Boesmansgat cave in South Africa. It would take them 15 minutes to reach the bottom, but 12 hours to surface. Having reached the bottom, against all odds, they find a body. They decide to come back and retrieve it. They call the parents, enrol 8 fellow divers, and hire a cameraman to document the dive. The camera will follow them throughout the preparation and the dive, including to the bottom of the cave. Little did they know that on that historic dive, Dave would not be coming back. In this time of over-performance driven by self-promotion and self-filming comes Boesmansgat, a story of loss and mourning where egoism and altruism, hubris and self-control, risk-taking and spirituality all go hand in hand. A cascade of choices and tense paradoxes that lead to a tragedy long foreseen, yet impossible to prevent.

La mer entre nous (STF)
Fifteen years of bloody civil war have left deep marks on Lebanon’s politics and society. More than 25 years after the war’s end, the capital, Beirut, is still fraught with tension. Filmmaker Marlene Edoyan follows two women, members of the same generation who apparently have nothing in common. Hayat and Wafaa, one Muslim and the other Christian, live in a place where Hezbollah and the Phalange are well-established political parties, and where nearby conflicts only stir up bad memories. Is reconciliation possible in a city carved up by invisible borders? In masterful direct cinema style, the filmmaker observes ideologies through the often-ignored prism of women’s perspectives.
 
Cinéspectacle: Classiques à la demande
The program of this concert was entirely chosen by the public of the orchestra by vote!

Echoing Mozart, the overture to Rossini's opera-bouffe Le Barbier de Séville is, like Les Noces de Figaro, inspired by Beaumarchais' comedy.

One of Rimsky-Korsakov's most famous works, the Sheherazade suite, a monument to oriental influences, is inspired by episodes from The Arabian Nights. "The story of Prince Kalender" allows one to appreciate all the richness of the orchestra's sound!

Jacques Hétu is one of the most prolific composers in Quebec and one of the most frequently performed composers abroad. After its world premiere in 1971, his Third Symphony was recorded by the Nouvel orchestre philharmonique de Radio-France.

Improvising pianist and composer, the "jazz symphonist" George Gershwin was only 26 years old when he premiered his Rhapsody in Blue in New York. Performed here by Quebec pianist Jean-Philippe Sylvestre, the work is full of dazzling virtuosity and irresistible themes.
