Directed by Kimura Byol - Nathalie Lemoine
The documentary “#6261” proposes an artistic vision of the city of Montreal at the intersection of the hybrid identities of the people who live there. The sense of belonging of eleven Montreal residents who share their local or international immigration experience is enriched by their understanding of elsewhere, others and globalization.
SFUFF 2018 / 150 minsOn-line ticket sales will end at 4pm. Tickets will be available at the door at SPUR starting at 5:30pm today. All people who define themselves as New Yorkers, Tel-Avivians or Montréalais have some things in common with others who hold the same self-definition. But that sense of belonging does not necessarily compromise other affinities. How do some cities enable a multitude of identities and coexistence? The short films in this program explore identity in the city, including the unique approach of the documentary short film "#6261" on strangers-neighbors who share a relationship with this number in Montreal, and "Life-Sized City - Episode 5:Tel-Aviv", exploring a city in conflict through grassroots urban initiatives that transcend religious, political and class boundaries.
