Film: Donoma [Haïti] réal. Djinn

Présenté dans le cadre du 10e festival de films DiverCiné : les écrans de la Francophonie du monde. Une enseignante s’engage dans une relation ambiguë avec le cancre de sa classe de lycée professionnel ; une jeune femme déçue en amour décide de court-circuiter tous ses critères conscients et inconscients de choix, en sortant littéralement avec le premier venu ; la dernière histoire met en scène une jeune fille agnostique qui va être amenée à se poser des questions sur la religion chrétienne. Elle va au cours de son
questionnement rencontrer un jeune homme un peu marginal et très croyant. Toutes ces histoires se croisent sans s’influencer, et trouvent une symbolique dans le lever de soleil qui donne son nom au film : Donoma (Le jour est là).

Zimbabwe - Looking Back & Looking Forward, Dr. Andrew Pocock, British High Commissioner to Canada. Zimbabwe has travelled a sad and
troubled road, from the high promise of independence to its near-pariah state today. Drawing on his time as British Ambassador to Zimbabwe from 2006 to 2009, Dr. Andrew Pocock will describe his experiences, including his interaction with President Mugabe, and present a narrative of the country's politics, economy, and social issues. He will also look at the current situation and outline his assessment for substantial change in the future. How will this complex dilemma unfold? What are the prospects for real improvement for Zimbabwe's people? What are the impediments? From his wider experience, Dr. Pocock will examine Zimbabwe in larger African context and the implications for the global community,
including what, if anything, Canada and other countries can do to assist the
process of political transformation in Zimbabwe. Dr. Andrew Pocock was born in Port of Spain, Trinidad, and joined the United Kingdom's Foreign and Commonwealth Office in 1981. During the next ten years, he served in Lagos and Washington and as Head of Section in the Southern Africa Department in the FCO in London. He was posted to Canberra as Deputy High Commissioner from 1997-2001. He returned to the FCO as a Head of Department, before serving as High Commissioner in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, from 2003 to 2006, and as Ambassador in Harare, Zimbabwe, from 2006 to 2009. Dr. Pocock was Director for Africa in the FCO in 2010, before arriving in Ottawa in January 2011 as High Commissioner. Cost: $30 for luncheon and presentation. $5 for presentation only.
