Phantom Thread (STF)
Set in the glamour of 1950's post-war London, renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis) and his sister Cyril (Lesley Manville) are at the center of British fashion, dressing royalty, movie stars, heiresses, socialites, debutants and dames with the distinct style of The House of Woodcock. Women come and go through Woodcock's life, providing the confirmed bachelor with inspiration and companionship, until he comes across a young, strong-willed woman, Alma (Vicky Krieps), who soon becomes a fixture in his life as his muse and lover. Once controlled and planned, he finds his carefully tailored life disrupted by love. With his latest film, Paul Thomas Anderson paints an illuminating portrait both of an artist on a creative journey, and the women who keep his world running. Phantom Thread is Paul Thomas Anderson's eighth movie, and his second collaboration with Daniel Day-Lewis.

Ensemble (STA)
Autumn of 2017. The Orchestre Métropolitain de Montréal begins its first international tour of Europe’s most prestigious concert halls. This series of concerts is the crowning and paroxysm of the rich relationship between the musicians and their leader, Yannick Nézet-Séguin. Over four seasons, Jean-Nicolas Orhon’s camera follows the preparation of this international adventure and gently penetrates the daily life of the orchestra. ENSEMBLE reveals the precious role of the maestro, exposes the excitement behind the scenes, displays the intimacy of the musicians and poses a new and delicate look on those whose life sublimes the love of music.

Border (STA)
Ali Abbasi’s Border follows the story of a border agent who uses her ability to sense or smell human emotions to catch smugglers — but when one man confounds her detection, she’s forced to confront a new reality.

A recent favourite at Cannes, Ali Abbasi’s Border is a stunning, near–note perfect mystery that seamlessly fuses fantasy, social commentary, and psychological insight. The heroine, Tina (Eva Melander), was born with a facial “disfiguration,” a strange scar on her tailbone, and the ability to sense or smell how people feel. She’s especially adept at detecting fear or unease.

Goethe: Free Lunch Society (STA)
Presented as part of MARX NOW, a series of events initiated by the Goethe-Institut in North America on the occasion of the 200th anniversary celebrations of Karl Marx’s birthday.

Short introduction by Professor Beverley Best, Concordia University, followed by discussion with filmmaker Christian Tod.

Just a few years ago, an unconditional basic income was considered a pipe dream. Today, this utopia is more imaginable than ever before - intense discussions are taking place in all political and scientific camps. Unconditional basic income means money for everyone - as a human right without consideration. Visionary reform project, neoliberal axe at the roots of the welfare state or socially romantic leftist utopia? The basic income shows very different ideological faces, depending on the type and scope of income. FREE LUNCH SOCIETY provides background information about this idea and searches for explanations, possibilities and experiences regarding its implementation. From Alaska‘s oil fields to the Canadian prairie, from Washington‘s think tanks to the Namibian steppes, the film takes us on a grand journey and shows us what the driverless car has to do with the ideas of a German billionaire and a Swiss referendum. FREE LUNCH SOCIETY, the first international film in cinemas about basic income, is dedicated to one of the most crucial questions of our times.

"Fascinating interviews, archival footage, and lively pop culture references." —Doxa Festival, Vancouver

Christian Tod is a filmmaker and economist. He began working on Free Lunch Society, combining his expertise in both fields for a project he considers utterly important for the future of mankind: Unconditional Basic Income. Free Lunch Society premiered in 2017 in Copenhagen at the CPH:DOX Film Festival, was theatrically released in numerous countries and has participated in over 50 film festivals.

Beverley Best is an Associate Professor in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology, Concordia University, Montreal. She is the author of Marx and the Dynamic of the Capital Formation: An Aesthetics of Political Economy (Palgrave Macmillan, 2010).

Transit (STA)
German troops are fast approaching Paris. Georg, a German refugee, escapes to Marseille in the nick of time. In his luggage, he carries the documents of an author, Weidel, who has taken his own life in fear of his persecutors. Those documents include a manuscript, letters and visa assurance from the Mexican embassy.

In Marseille, only those who can prove they will leave, may remain. Visas for possible host countries, transit visas, and those scarce tickets for passage by ship are much needed. Georg has memorized Weidel's papers and assumes his identity. He delves into the quasi-existence of flight: refugee chatter in the corridors of a small hotel, the consulates, cafés and bars that line the harbor... He befriends Driss, the son of his comrade Heinz, who died on the run. Why move on at all? Are new beginnings possible elsewhere anyway?

Everything changes when Georg falls in love with the mysterious Marie. Is it devotion or calculation that has led her to share her life with a doctor, Richard, before journeying on in search of her husband? He's said to have surfaced in Marseille in possession of a Mexican visa for him and his wife.

TRANSIT an interview with Christian Petzold - "It’s a war story. A doomed love story. A ghost story. A parable. It’s dark, thrilling and strangely funny, in an absurdist, Kafka-esque way." - Globe Arts
