Montreal's FNC Reveal Its Line-Up of Canadian Films

Montreal's Festival du nouveau cinéma (FNC), which will be held from October 12 to 23, revealed to day its line-up of Canadian films. These films will be part of the Focus Québec/Canada category. The latter will be opened by the documentary Surviving Progress, by Mathieu Roy and Harold Crooks, on October 13.

This documentary is based on the bestselling book A Short History of Progress, by Ronald Wright. It questions the bright side and the perils of progress through interviews with people such as David Suzuki, Margaret Atwood or even Stephen Hawking.

The film will also be accompanied by another documentary called Fortunate Son, which was directed by Montreal-based documentarist Tony Asimakopoulos. This documentary is an auto-biography about how a drug-addict almost destroyed his family.

As for feature films, the FNC will screen some films that were at the Toronto International Film Festival. Among them is Amy George, a teen drama by Yonah Lewis and Calvin Thomas. There is also Ingrid Veninger's I am a good person, I am a bad person; Simon Lavoie et Mathieu Denis' social drama Laurentie; and Ivan Grbovic's Roméo Onze.

The FNC will also screen The Girl in the White Coat, a film directed by Darrell Wa loosely based on Nicolai Gogol's short story, and Yassaman Ameri's Marginal Road.

Finally, the FNC will unveil its complete line-up of films on September 27.

A Dangerous Method

Date of release: December 23.
