There is no better illustration of the diversity of the SEL’s work than back-to-back screenings of Leviathan and Manakamana. The latter is just as calm and focused as its predecessor was intense and feverish. Consisting of 11 fixed-camera shots taken inside a cable car in Nepal, Manakamana encourages us to rethink the very function of a shot and the ability of documentary cinema to represent the other. Our gaze is free to make its own choices, but the film asks us to see the world differently.

Presented in collaboration with Le Festival du Nouveau Cinéma, the Canada Council for the Art, the LEF Foundation, the McGill’s Department of Anthropology and the Chaire René-Malo de l’UQAM.
