**Free event - tickets distributed 2 hours before screening at the venue.**

The first Canadian film to be invited to Cannes' prestigious Competition section, Michel Brault and Pierre Perrault's direct-cinema portrait of Île-aux-Coudres, an island community in the St. Lawrence River, felicitously debuted alongside Chris Marker's Le Joli mai, which led some critics to announce that cinema verité had truly arrived.

Centred upon the residents' revival (with the filmmakers' encouragement) of their ancestors' nearly lost tradition of whale hunting, Pour la suite de monde both revels in Quebec's past and eulogizes it, even as it skirts mere nostalgia (as scholars Peter Harcourt and André Loiselle argue) by sharply focusing on the marginalization of the island's youth. A huge popular success in Quebec, Pour la suite de monde has rightfully taken its place as a Canadian classic.
