Join us after the screening for a live Reclaim the Frame Q&A with director Miryam Charles.

10 years after the tragic and suspicious death of a teenage girl, her cousin, director Miryam Charles, examines the past causes and future consequences of this unsolved crime.

Cette Maison is a French Canadian magical realist and experimental documentary, which premiered at Berlinale in 2022.

Playing out like an imagined biography, the film explores the relationship between the security of the living space and the violence that can jeopardize it.

Filmed entirely on 16mm, the visually stunning film imaginatively explores themes of grief, diasporic trauma, and motherhood.

Reclaim the Frame brings a broader perspective of the world by championing cinema by women & non-binary filmmakers.

Run by Birds’ Eye View, a charity with a mission to advocate for equity, diversity, and inclusion in film by fostering a community for those who make, show, release and watch them.
