      The indoor screenings on Saturday 1 May went well, without any intervention. We thank you sincerely again for attending and the local authorities for not preventing them. We stand in solidarity with those places whose Still Standing activities could not take place.

      For those who did attend, you were delighted, supportive, grateful… Enchanted families, and even a very first cinema experience for a child for the Calamity screening, this is heartwarming! The Burning Out debate generated a lot of questions and reactions: you showed your need to debate and share your experiences and feelings about the pandemic. We would like to thank the speakers for their trust and communication: director Jérôme le Maire, anthropologist Tania Korsak and philosopher and co-author of the film Pascal Chabot. The emotion was intense after the last screening of the day with Petite fille by Sébastien Lifshitz, in partnership with Genre d’à côté/Pink Screens.

      It is important for us to take care of these moments of communion, cinema, culture, trust and exchange.

      “We hope to have contributed to the movement of opening doors, floodgates and questioning the relevance of measures by citizens. The struggle continues to allow the plurality of essential expressions, in all spaces, all places, all territories.”

      As part of Still Standing for Culture, we look forward to seeing you again at our next special screening this Friday, May 7, with a film-debate around the film For Sama.

      See you soon!
      The Cinema Galeries team.

      “We will open because we want to get out of this destructive logic that sacrifices activities that bring meaning, debate and social links, and relegates them to the rank of adjustment variables. […] Because we have been saying for months, without being heard, that we must stop pitting sectors against each other and that all human activities must be able to resume in a proportional way in front of the health situation. “.
