Screening in April

Antigone

Sophie Deraspe

Because of the measures taken against the coronavirus most of the screenings will be cancelled. Contact your own theatre about the cancellation of your tickets. We are looking for a possibility to screen the movie on a later date.

Loosely based on Sophocles’ Greek tragedy, Antigone tells the story of Antigone, who fled to Canada with her family for a better life but instead faces injustice.

Antigone’s new home in Montreal turns out not to be the home she hoped it to be. When she is a teenager she sees how her brother Polynice gets caught up in criminality. And when the police turns up when they are playing a game in the streets, her other brother Étéocle gets shot when he tries to protect Polynice from being unjustly arrested. Polynice is arrested and faces deportation because he has attacked a policeman.

Antigone (beautifully portrayed by debutant Nahéma Ricci) thinks she can save Polynice by sacrificing herself. However, the police don’t fall for their game and Antigone and her family see how immigrants don’t have the same rights.
