PONDICHÉRY | QUEBEC FILM FESTIVAL
As part of the International Month of the #Francophonie, the Quebec Government Office in Mumbai organizes, in collaboration with the Alliance Française de Pondichéry, a screening of the Quebec film ''Montréal La Blanche". The film will be screened in French with English subtitles.

SYNOPSIS
In Montreal, one evening when Christmas has fallen during Ramadan, the Muslim fast, the paths of two Algerians cross momentarily, resurrecting a past they thought was long buried. Amokrane, a taxi driver, has fled his home and the festivities on the grounds that it will be a profitable night to work. He picks up Kahina, slightly disoriented professional who is attempting to contact her ex-husband to collect her daughter. Amokrane recognizes Kahina as
his idol, a former pop star in Algeria, who he thought was dead. This sets the stage for the collision of their personal dramas and their solitudes. Through the rear view mirror, Algeria surfaces, reaching into the silence in a procession of shadows and sorrows believed to be buried under the Montreal snow.

SYNOPSIS
Montréal, un soir où Noël tombe en plein mois de Ramadan ou carême musulman, les destins de deux Algériens d’origine
convergent momentanément pour faire resurgir un passé dont ils se croyaient débarrassés. Fuyant la maison et toute forme de
festivité sous le prétexte que la soirée peut être très lucrative, Amokrane, chauffeur de taxi, recueille Kahina, jeune professionnelle
un peu perdue qui tente de rejoindre son ex-mari pour récupérer sa fille. Amokrane reconnaît en elle son idole, une ancienne
vedette de la pop en Algérie, qu’il croyait morte. La nuit et le taxi seront le théâtre du choc de leurs deux drames, de leurs deux solitudes. Dans le rétroviseur, l’Algérie resurgit, s’immisce dans tous les silences, avec son cortège d’ombres et de douleurs que l’on croyait enfouies sous les neiges de Montréal.
