HOCHELAGA, LAND OF SOULS
TERRE DES ÂMES
2017, 100 min, Canada, Dir: François Girard

After a tremendous downpour hits Montreal, a huge sinkhole opens up in Percival-Molson Stadium during a football game. The stadium is evacuated and becomes a protected archaeological site, revealing centuries of history beneath the field. Mohawk archaeologist Baptiste Asigny (Samian) discovers a multitude of generations who have occupied the land, each with buried secrets, as he sets out to find what he’s sought his entire career: the vestiges of the village of Hochelaga where his Iroquoian ancestors met French explorer Jacques Cartier in October 1535. The impressive cast includes Vincent Perez, Wahiakeron Gilbert, Raoul Trujillo, Sébastien Ricard and Siân Phillips.


In French, Algonquin, Iroquoian and English with English subtitles | Screening format: DCP
