August 8 at 8 PM: Family First (Chien de garde)
Canada 2018 – 88 minutes, In French with English subtitles. Director: Sophie Dupuis, Cast: Théodore Pellerin, Jean-Simon Leduc. Family First is a visceral shock to the system, suffused with raw energy and excitement that calls to mind the rush of early Martin Scorsese, Mean Streets. JP lives with his brother, mother, and girlfriend, in a small apartment in the Verdun section of Montréal. Constantly walking a tightrope, JP tries to maintain a balance between his own life with his girlfriend, their dreams for a steadier future, and the numerous needs of his family, for which he feels responsible.
