Antigone is an Algerian-born teenager living in Montreal with her immigrant family. A straight-A student and model citizen, her world is shaken when, at the hands of the police, tragedy strikes two of her brothers. Driven by her sense of justice, Antigone acts against the state, with potentially devastating consequences for her. This modern adaptation of the classic Greek tragedy incorporates urgent contemporary questions of immigration, identity, and the power of idealism. In French & Arabic. Subtitled. Cosponsored by the Department of Classics. More at cinemalibrestudio.com/antigone
