After a sexist joke goes viral, Cedric, a new father and engineer, is suspended by his employer. His brother Jean-Michel encourages Cédric to start a therapeutic reflection on the foundations of his misogyny. His wife Nadine, on the other hand, is dealing with postpartum depression and a mental burden that is driving her into a state of abysmal solitude. The arrival in their lives of a babysitter with hypnotic powers turns their lives upside down.

- On ne tue jamais par amour, Manon Testud (2021, 15’)
In the middle of the night, women, sisters, colleagues and friends gather together: an inclusive group that meets in joy and good humour to leave writings on the walls. They want to raise awareness so that the systemic violence suffered by women and gender minorities can be brought to an end. In Montreal, the collective is acting with sober collages for a strong message: stop feminicide!
Screenings on March 14 at 1.30 pm and 9pm and on March 17 at 1.30 pm
With the support of the Canadian Cultural Centre in Paris.
