HIGHER THAN FLAMES WILL GO (Plus Haut Que Les Flammes)
Wednesday, March 24, 2021 at 8 PM PT

Part of a Week of French Language Cinema
Organized by Théâtre Raymond Kabbaz
In this cinematic tour de force, Monique LeBlanc brings to the screen Louise Dupré’s Award-winning book of poetry, Plus Haut Que Les Flammes, recited in its entirety in the film by actress Violette Chauveau.
Devastated by a visit to Auschwitz and Birkenau, a woman, a grandmother, tries to go on living and caring for a child. Because beyond the worst man-made horrors there is childhood, through which all roads to the future must pass. Weaving different stories, different experiences, and different landscapes together, from Auschwitz to Canada via the United States, Nicaragua and the Ukraine, the filmmaker offers a moving meditation on how we might elevate the youth that will inherit this world “higher than flames will go.”
The screening will be presented on the Eventive Platform on March 24th at 8 PM PDT. You will have 3 hours to start watching. Once you begin, you will have 24 hours to finish watching.
In French and other languages with English subtitles.
