LA CARTE DE TENDRE: French Language Shorts
Reelout is thrilled to partner with the Centre Cultural Frontenac each and every year to present a special french language program at the festival. This year, some of our shorts are a little more “explicit” than other years so unfortunately for our younger audiences, this program is for 18 years and over.
Different (Je Suis Different.e) by Ben Lemaire/2:20min/2017/FRANCE I came out to my parents months ago. Before talking to them I was hopeful. I was terrified, but I was hopeful. Too much hopeful.
Marguerite by Marianne Farley/19min/2017/CANADA An aging woman and her nurse develop a friendship that inspires her to unearth unacknowledged longing and thus help her make peace with her past.
Trois Mois by Sasha Alcoloumbre/17:03min/2018/CANADA Three Months follows the romance of two young men, Marc and Andreas, which wavers when Marc reveals belatedly that he is HIV positive and undetectable. After distancing himself, Andreas comes to the understanding that his health was not put at risk, and begins to entertain the idea of being in a mixed-status relationship. Though Marc and Andreas reconcile, will they be able to move forward romantically?
Predrink by Marc-Antoine Lemire/23min/2017/CANDADA Alexe is a young trans woman, and Carl a gay man. Best friends since forever, an evening spent together destabilizes Alexe, when both decide to have sex together for the first time.
Enter by Manuel Billi and Benjamin Bodi/19 min/2018/FRANCE During a night of drinking, Raphael arrives by chance in an apartment where an orgy takes place. Embarrassed, he locks himself in the bathroom where he will find a sleeping guy he knows pretty well.
Ballet Jazz by Maxime Robin/16min/2017/CANADA Karine and Karine share one dream: to dance in the musical Cats on Broadway. But on audition day, their road trip from a remote Quebec suburb to New York City goes horribly, hilariously wrong.
