[cinemaexp] Meeting 10/18/18 @ 10:00 am

Attached you will find my notes about our situation following the last
meeting. I think there are some films we could probably remove from our
consideration based on what we knew last week. Obviously, we may have a
sense of what direction we are headed and whether we are interested in a
series of other films depending on what we have seen or learned about them
over the last couple of weeks. I look forward to a good dialogue about our
films tomorrow. I think it might be helpful to begin our discussion by
addressing our options regarding Quebec films as well as classic films

 

I did add one film to our 2019 list:

d1a-76a6-49eb-9acb-5d6959572df8&pf_rd_r=345B66KHT7J783C0RBY5&pf_rd_s=right-4
&pf_rd_t=48201&pf_rd_i=watchlist&ref_=wt_otl_1>
&pf_rd_p=4dc7ad1a-76a6-49eb-9acb-5d6959572df8&pf_rd_r=345B66KHT7J783C0RBY5&p
f_rd_s=right-4&pf_rd_t=48201&pf_rd_i=watchlist&ref_=wt_otl_1 

 

This film is "HOCHELAGA, LAND OF SOULS"
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt6530104/?ref_=ttls_li_tt and
http://www.maxfilms.ca/  There is more about it in my attachment. I am
curious about whether this seems like a film that would appeal to the local
Franco populations as well as others in that it addresses the history of
Montreal over several centuries. Here are a couple of reviews:

I shared a link to the distributor of "THE SWAN" which had a trailer, but
you may find this review-which I serendipitously discovered-to be helpful:

I look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow.
