At Night, They Dance

Isabelle Lavigne in Cannes.jpegThe Cannes Film festival is underway in the south of France, and this year just one Canadian feature film has been selected for the prestigious festival. 

At Night, They Dance is a documentary about a clan of Egyptian women that have passed along the art of belly dancing from generation to generation.
 
The film takes an unsentimental, intimate look at the tough reality of their lives. The co-directors -- Isabelle Lavigne and St├ęphane Thibault (in Cannes, above) -- compare their story to an Almodovar film.

The film will be shown on May 18 - and hits cinemas in Quebec City and Montreal on Friday.

 Dave reached Isabelle Lavigne on the phone in Cannes, France.
