Spotlight on our cinema
QUéBEC, Canada | 94 minutes | 2019
A Prairie no-man’s-land or an incubator of unbridled creativity? Winnipeg remains an enigma — and the second feature from Ryan McKenna (Le Cœur de Madame Sabali) adds its own two cents to the conversation. His solitary protagonists, alternately in search of love or meaning, are linked by the surprising letters they sent to Peter Warren, the longstanding controversial host of the infamous Action Line radio show. Shot in beautiful black-and-white, its sets brimming with inventiveness, Cranks allies its quirkiness with bittersweet humour.Q&A with the cast and crew on October 15th and 16th
