FOLLOWED BY A DISCUSSION with Jennifer Alleyn and Pascale Bussières 

In collaboration with TD Bank Group, Arsenal Contemporary Art Montreal invites you to TD Cultural Tuesday : Jennifer Alleyn presents IMPETUS.  

Artist and filmmaker Jennifer Alleyn’s latest feature film, combining fiction and documentary, is a meditation on creation, the poetry of everyday life, the solitude and the beauty of human contact. A conversation with filmmaker Jennifer Alleyn and actress Pascale Bussières will follow the screening.  

This event will take place in French.

Jennifer Alleyn | fiction / documentary | Fr. + En., sub. Fr. | 94 minutes 

In the process of her ongoing film shoot in New York City, a filmmaker finds herself questioning the origin of impulsion. As she tries to overcome loss through creation, an unexpected event enlightens her journey. A search for movement beneath inertia. Art in real life. Music as a cure. A craving for unbounded cinema.

With Emmanuel Schwartz and Pascale Bussières, J. Reissner and Esfir Dyachkov.

Born in Switzerland, Jennifer Alleyn is an artist and filmmaker based in Montreal. Her filmography includes « Cosmos » (awarded at Cannes), « L’atelier de mon père » and « Dix fois Dix » (winners at the FIFA). In parallel with cinema, she develops a plastic practice that integrates video, installation and photography. Her installation "A Few Lost Words", produced in collaboration with Nancy Huston, was presented at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts in 2011. In her work, the themes of absence and loss echo an ideal of human solidarity. Her recent work is currently exhibited at the Maison de la Culture of the City of Longueuil.

The purpose of the TD Cultural Tuesdays is to bring contemporary visual art into dialogue with other artistic practices. From 6 to 9, these gatherings take the form of events allowing the convergence of different audiences in a friendly atmosphere.
