In addition to the show Quills by Doug Wright (3 to 6 October), the national arts Centre will be screening the film Marat/Sade (1967) Monday, October 1st, at 18h.
The screening will be followed by a discussion with Julie Paquette, a professor at Saint Paul University and expert on the work and life of the marquis de Sade.
In Marat/Sade, the marquis confined to the asylum of Charenton created a piece of theatre that tells of the assassination of Jean-Paul Marat. Its actors are the other patients. While the director of the asylum believed to reflect his views patriotic, the actors recite the parts of the scenario that he had deleted by dragging their personal opinions.
The film is an adaptation of the theatre play of the same name by Peter Weiss. The screening will be in English with French subtitles. The event of October 1st, will be free of charge.
