    Stateless, by Michèle Stephenson
     2020, 95 min, French and Creole with either English or French subtitles, Not Rated
    In 1937, tens of thousands of Haitians and Dominicans of Haitian descent were exterminated by the Dominican army on the basis of anti-black racism. Fast-forward to 2013: the Dominican Republic’s Supreme Court stripped the citizenship of anyone with Haitian parents, retroactive to 1929, rendering more than 200,000 people stateless. Director Michèle Stephenson’s new documentary follows the grassroots campaign of a young attorney named Rosa Iris, as she challenges electoral corruption and fights to protect the right to citizenship for all people.

    Unarmed Verses, by Charles Officer
     2016, 85 min, English with French subtitles, Not Rated
    This feature documentary presents a thoughtful and vivid portrait of a community facing imposed relocation. At the centre of the story is a remarkably astute and luminous 12-year-old black girl whose poignant observations about life, the soul, and the power of art give voice to those rarely heard in society. Unarmed Verses is a cinematic rendering of our universal need for self-expression and belonging.

    When renowned crime novelist Harlan Thrombey is found dead at his estate just after his 85th birthday, the inquisitive and debonair Detective Benoit Blanc is mysteriously enlisted to investigate. From Harlan's dysfunctional family to his devoted staff, Blanc sifts through a web of red herrings and self-serving lies to uncover the truth behind Harlan's untimely death.

    Les circonstances entourant la mort de l'auteur de romans policiers Harlan Thrombey sont nébuleuses. Mais lors de l'enquête, aucun doute ne s'installe dans l'esprit du célèbre détective Benoit Blanc : tous les membres de la famille dysfonctionnelle de la victime sont suspects. Il doit alors passer en revue un tissu de mensonges et de diversions s'il souhaite dévoilere la vérité.
