Before We Go


With director Jorge León in person

Dir. Jorge León. Belgium, 2014, 82 mins. U.S. premiere. “Memento mori meets carpe diem” wrote Hollywood Reporter critic Neil Young about Jorge León’s deeply moving and unique backstage film, a theatrical blend of documentary and staged encounters and performances—dance, song, and theater—as a trio of terminally ill patients interact with a Brussels theater company. The film captures the life-affirming power of communal artistic activity. Preceded by Ville Marie (Dir. Alexandre Larose. Canada, 12 mins. 35mm.) Images captured by dropping a camera from the tops of buildings are optically printed to form a vertiginous and dynamic free-falling montage.
