From the producers of the award winning Incendies, MONSIEUR LAZHAR is a profoundly moving story about a group of young schoolchildren coming to terms with the adult world before their time, and the inspirational educator who transforms their lives.
Set in Montreal, a Year 6 class is shocked and saddened by the sudden passing of their beloved teacher. Having learned of the incident in the newspaper, Bachir Lazhar, a 55 year-old Algerian immigrant, makes his way to the school and offers his services as a substitute teacher. He's in the right place at the right time, and is quickly hired to fill in.
The substantial cultural gap between Lazhar and his new class is immediately apparent, but little by little, Lazhar comes to understand this motley but endearing group, among whom are Alice and Simon, two charismatic pupils particularly affected by their teacher's passing. Yet while the class begins to heal, nobody in the school is aware of Lazhar's painful past; nor do they suspect that his own place in the world is in jeopardy. 2011 micro_scope inc.

Komona (Rachel Mwanza) is only 12 years old when she is kidnapped by rebel soldiers and enslaved to a life of guerilla warfare in the African jungle. Forced to commit unspeakable acts of brutality, she finds hope for survival in protective, ghost-like visions (inspiring a rebel chief to anoint her "War Witch") and in a tender relationship with a fellow soldier named Magician (Serge Kanyinda). Together, they manage to escape the rebel's clutches, and a normal life finally seems within reach. But after their freedom proves short-lived, Komona realises that she must find a way to bury the ghosts of her past. © Pinnacle Films 2012 (Original Title: War Witch)
It's Only the End of the World
“It’s Only the End of the World” is based on a play of the same name by Jean-Luc Lagarce, in which a writer (Louis) goes back to his hometown, planning on announcing his upcoming death to his family. As resentment soon rewrites the course of the afternoon, all attempts of empathy are sabotaged by people’s incapacity to listen and love.
