Compelling, poignant, sometimes funny stories of cross-cultural encounters or collisions, both true and fiction, from around the world are screened at the International Film Festival.
The festival’s opening night film is Felix and Meira, directed by Maxime Giroux (Quebec, 2014, 105 mins). Meira, a young wife and mother, longs to experience life outside the strict confines of her Orthodox Jewish community. Felix, who lives in the same Montreal neighborhood, feels lost after the death of his wealthy father, from whom he was estranged. The two find comfort in their unexpected friendship, but are faced with the challenge of coming from vastly different worlds.
