Les Montréalistes
Denys Arcand,Canada, 1965, 27 min

 
 

Court métrage documentaire réalisé par Denys Arcand sur les fondateurs de Montréal. Comment est née Ville-Marie? Quelle était la vision religieuse d’un de ses fondateurs, Paul de Chomedey de Maisonneuve? Quelle influence y exercèrent les communautés religieuses? Tout en faisant la large part à l’œuvre de Jeanne-Mance, de Marguerite-Bourgeois et autres âmes d’élite, ce film montre les difficultés qu’ont dû surmonter les Montréalistes, comme ils se nommaient eux-mêmes, aux premières heures de la colonie.

 

Hypnagogia
Pierre-Luc Vaillancourt, Canada, 2018, 5 min
 
 

Marked by an intense hypnotic dimension, HYPNAGOGIA amplifies geophysical forces and propels telluric powers. The experience is an ontological fire, a cerebral blast of volcanic sensuality.

"The production of nervous force is directly connected with the diet of an individual, and its refining depends on the very purity of this diet, allied to appropriate breathing exercises.

The diet most calculated to act effectively on the nervous force is that which contains the least quantity of animal matter; therefore the Pythagorean diet, in this connection, is the most suitable.

...

The main object was to avoid introducing into the organism what Descartes called 'animal spirits'. Thus, all animals that had to serve for the nourishment of the priests were slaughtered according to special rites, they were not murdered, as is the case nowadays".
