Antigone, by Sophie Deraspe - Canada, 2019
Antigone is a powerful and thought-provoking film set in contemporary Quebec. Described as an “adaptation libre,” it is inspired by Sophocles’ classic tragedy of the same name (and Anouilh’s version as well). A teenage girl from an immigrant family (Algerian) defies authority after the police kill her brother. Her focus is on what her heart tells her and loyalty to her family, set against the legal system. Among other creative elements is the remarkable use of the ensuing protest movement as a Greek Chorus. The lead actress’ performance is no less than riveting.
