On the occasion of the 52nd edition of the festival Visions du Réel, Tënk offers you 3 key films from the 2020 edition which celebrate avant-garde documentary filmmaking!
Philosopher Alain Deneault presents a spotlight on the economy. Through a selection of five films, this layover tackles various global issues related to the excesses of capitalism.
From an unhinged agri-food industry to ultramodern business management methods, this spotlight deciphers a world out of whack.
Ah! Laughter! A natural antidepressant, an outpouring of joy, a release of tensions… Some say documentary is not particularly recognized for its use of humor as a narrative strategy, but this stopover concocted by filmmaker Christine Chevarie will prove them wrong!
This selection of five films approach reality with a humorous touch, from tender irony to absurdity!
"Seizing life. Getting a sense of what is happening in life, in society, in the streets, in the spirit of the age. That was not for women at the time... and I did it anyway!"
The first platform entirely dedicated to auteur documentaries, is now available from coast to coast! To mark its first anniversary, Tënk is launching its bilingual version. All of Canada will now be able to enjoy the carefully curated and weekly updated selections of the best documentaries, in English and in French.
For the occasion, Tënk proposes an incursion into the world of Canadian and Anglophone Quebec filmmakers. The two solitudes meet in the field of creation!
