Lolos (Boobs)

Marie Valade

CANADA (QUÉBEC), 7 MIN, NO DIALOGUE

 

A young woman in ink drawing is destabilized by the arrival of paper breasts that are born on her chest and must quickly deal with these new foreign bodies. Her breasts lead her into increasingly unusual situations that reveal her deepest anxieties: the fear of becoming a woman, the apprehension of female rivalries, the taming of male desire, the worries of becoming a mother and finally the fear of cancer and a loss of bearings. Lolos is both a comic and dark journey exploring a woman's love-hate relationship with her body and femininity. It highlights the powerful symbolism that breasts evoke in everyone's eyes.

The Great Malaise

Catherine Lepage

CANADA (QUÉBEC), 2019, 5 MIN, FRENCH, FRENCH SUBTITLES

A young woman tries to describe herself, presenting herself in an idyllic light: the one expected of her. The visual narration tells a different story, however, illustrating with poignant force the anxiety-inducing charge of hyperperformance and the race for happiness. A film that is both funny and touching, and above all, deeply human.

The Hairdresser

Lorraine Price

CANADA (QUÉBEC), 2021, 13 MIN, FRENCH, ENGLISH SUBTITLES

 

Kathleen is a hairdresser. She always has been and always will be. Even at the age of 83 she is still doing hair, just not in the way you would expect. Kathleen's work is special—she does the hair of terminally ill patients, in a palliative care unit. In this short, poetic documentary, Kathleen reflects on her experience, as we bear witness to her touching work.

I Like Girls

Diane Obomsawin

CANADA (QUÉBEC), 2016, 8 MIN, FRENCH, FRENCH SUBTITLES

In this animated short from Diane Obomsawin, four women reveal the nitty-gritty about their first loves, sharing funny and intimate tales of one-sided infatuation, mutual attraction, erotic moments, and fumbling attempts at sexual expression. For them, discovering that they're attracted to other women comes hand-in-hand with a deeper understanding of their personal identity and a joyful new self-awareness.
