    Sur les bancs d’école du Québec, certains élèves, malgré leur jeune âge, ont déjà vécu l’indicible. Réfugiés ayant fui la guerre et la violence de leur pays, ils apprennent comme leurs camarades à lire et à écrire, mais doivent aussi se réapproprier une vie normale. Comment recréer du sens pour ces enfants dont l’existence même a été en suspens ? Comment réussir leur intégration scolaire en tenant compte de leurs difficiles parcours individuels ?

    Psychologue spécialisée dans les traumatismes de guerre, Garine Papazian-Zohrabian porte elle-même la mémoire du génocide arménien et du conflit au Liban, qu’elle a subi pendant 15 ans. Aujourd’hui, elle accompagne différentes écoles du Québec pour former le personnel enseignant aux problèmes psychosociaux dont souffrent les jeunes réfugiés dans les classes. Leurs séquelles psychologiques peuvent provoquer des ravages : cauchemars, agressivité, dépression, comportement asocial, mutisme. À l’opposé des diagnostics hâtifs d’autisme ou de TDAH, Garine prône une approche patiente, évolutive et tout en profondeur. Plutôt que d’étiqueter les personnes et de privilégier un recours facile à la médication, elle propose de comprendre les contextes, les besoins et les souffrances derrière les troubles de comportement. Garine favorise ce lien de confiance et cette écoute bienveillante en développant des « cercles de parole », espaces propices à l’expression et à la reconstruction de soi. Les enfants, après des années de silence, y retrouvent petit à petit une voix et une socialisation bénéfique.

    Je pleure dans ma tête rend également hommage à l’admirable résilience et aux stratégies de survie de ces « petits adultes » que les bombes et les camps n’ont pas totalement brisés, à une époque où il est crucial de sensibiliser les sociétés occidentales aux enjeux liés à la migration et aux droits des enfants.

    The Bad Guys (2022) - 1hr 40mins - G

    A crackerjack criminal crew of animal outlaws are about to attempt their most challenging con yet: becoming model citizens. Never have there been five friends as infamous as these guys: dashing pickpocket Mr. Wolf, seen-it-all safecracker Mr. Snake, chill master of disguise Mr. Shark, short-fused 'muscle' Mr. Piranha, and sharp-tongued expert hacker Ms. Tarantula, aka 'Webs.' But when, after years of countless heists and being the world's most-wanted villains, the gang is finally caught, Mr. Wolf brokers a deal to save them all from prison: they will go good. Under the tutelage of their mentor Professor Marmalade, an arrogant (but adorable!) guinea pig, they set out to fool the world that they've been transformed. Along the way, though, Mr. Wolf begins to suspect that doing good for real may give him what he's always secretly longed for: acceptance. So, when a new villain threatens the city, can Mr. Wolf persuade the rest of the gang to become the Good Guys?
