Canada’s official entry for the 2020 Oscars

Writer-director Sophie Deraspe reimagines the story of Sophocles’ tragic antihero as an Algerian-born young woman in modern-day Quebec.

“…a gripping portrait of a family in crisis, a heroic tale of sibling loyalty, and a searing indictment of an immigration and justice system that is big on law and order but short on compassion.” – Peter Howell, Toronto Star

“Philosophically compelling and emotionally devastating, Deraspe crafts a unique and contemporary cinematic experience that resonates deeply.” – Justine Smith, Globe and Mail

“Writer/director Sophie Deraspe’s loose adaptation retains a fascination with the ties and responsibilities of family, but also develops into a timely reflection on the refugee experience.   An ambitious, wide-ranging drama destined to appeal to serious-minded audiences.” – Allan Hunter, ScreenDaily

PLEASE JOIN US FOR AN AFTER-FILM DISCUSSION WITH DR. PRAVINA COOPER, PROFESSOR OF THEATER AND FILM AT CAL STATE LONG BEACH.

Language: French (English subtitles)

Length: 1 hr. 49 min.
