With his landmark Z in 1969, the Greek-French filmmaker became known as a master of social fiction, a genre he uses to mercilessly attack the power systems in place.
While his indictments have often led to controversy and legal problems, Costa-Gavras refuses to back down. His captivating body of work, whether political thrillers or romantic dramas, embraces a rich, lavish aesthetic and, most importantly, a tireless quest for political justice.

Hosted by Denis Chouinard from UQAM
With the support of UniFrance
In collaboration with la Chaire René Malo and l'Ecole des médias de l'UQAM

Don't miss Adults in the Room, Costa-Gavras' latest offering, presented during the festival.
