PAVED Arts presents the StéréoKULTUR Circulation of the Pan-Canadian retrospective: Montreal, Berlin and Back.

by Lysanne Thibodeau

Screening: Friday July 6th in the event space beginning at 8pm!

StéréoKULTUR (, an organization for German-Canadian cultural exchange, is proud to present a panorama retrospective of independent film and video works shot in Montreal and Berlin by Quebec filmmaker Lysanne Thibodeau. This program will tour Canada from June 21 2012 onward, with the support of the Canada Arts Council.

Lysanne Thibodeau lived in Germany for more than 14 years, and this experience profoundly marked her artistic path. The Montreal, Berlin and Back program offers seven films and videos of hybrid genre, combining documentary, fiction and essay – including works made between 1978 and 2003, before, during and after her “Berlin exile”. Through the works presented, StéréoKULTUR creates a bridge between Canadian films shot in Germany and Canadian films inspired by a German experience, connecting the two cultures and producing intercultural exchange between artist and audience.

Montreal, Berlin and Back will be screened Friday July 6th in the event space beginning at 8pm. The program offers seven films of various genres, combining documentary, fiction and essay. Duration: 104 min

Lysanne Thibodeau will present a “master class” workshop on Saturday, July 7th beginning at 2pm. Please register early by contacting Reilly Forbes HERE
