Antigone

ANTIGONE | Thursday, February 27, 6:30pm / Sunday, March 1, 2:00pm
Directed by Sophie Deraspel, Canada, 2019, 109m.

Gripping, powerful, and of-the-moment, Antigone loosely adapts Sophocles’ Greek tragedy and situates it in contemporary Montreal. The latest from critically acclaimed Québécois writer-director Sophie Deraspe (The Wolves, The Amina Profile) is a compassionate family drama that doesn’t hold back on its indictment of the current refugee and immigrant experience in North America.
