Lilies (Free film screening)
Oct 4 2017 - 7:00pm

Lilies (Free film screening)

To celebrate the Alberta premiere of Lilies (Les Feluettes), Canada's first gay opera, Edmonton Opera presents a free Gay Film Series at Metro Cinema Garneau. This film series celebrates the best of gay cinema from both Hollywood and Canada in the last 20 years. From intensely romantic to psychologically charged, each film explores themes of forbidden love, societal norms, and the power of passion.

Lilies (English)

Bishop Bilodeau visits a prison to supposedly hear the confession of his old classmate Simon, who has been an imate there for 40 years. When he arrives, however, Simon and his fellow prisoners have something else in store — they put on a play depicting the events leading up to Simon's incarceration and force the Bishop to watch. Why? Because the Bishop's younger self was solely responsible for Simon's arrest. Based on the play Les Feluettes by Michel Marc Bouchard, Genie Award-winning Lilies depicts the tragic consequences of repressed love in a hostile society.

Free admission, please RSVP on Eventbrite.

Presented in partnership with Metro Cinema
