The Juniper Tree (2003) by Micheline Lanctot (renowned as an actor and director of both documentary and fiction) mixes documentary realism and fairy tale for a feminist reading of the Brothers Grimm classic focused on maternal filicide.  Set in a realistic suburban Montreal, the film downplays the horrific aspects and avoids neat psychological explanations of the mother’s behaviour in order to better analyze issues of female identity and patriarchy.

When: Tuesday, June 27 at 3pm
Where: Hugh Dempster Pavilion, 6245 Agronomy Road, room 301
