Mississauga Film Series

In February, Director and Mississauga native Richie Mehta joined us at the AMC Courtney Park to screen and discuss his award winning film Amal.

Those in attendance were treated to a Q & A with the Director, Producers and members of the cast.

Come out and be a part of the Mississauga Film Series which gives everyone a chance to view films specially selected from the Toronto International Film Festival's Film Circut.

The Diving Bell and the Butterfly
Director: Julian Schnabel, France, 2007
Language: French with English subtitles

Winner of the 2007 Cannes Film Festival, this beautiful adaptation of Jean-Dominique Bauby's memoir is an affecting, revelatory tribute.

Once a successful fashion editor and carefree womanizer, Bauby awoke one day to find himself a prisoner of his own body. Paralysed by a massive stroke his muscles were rendered powerless other than the movement of his left eyelid. His nurses develop an ingenious, if exhausting, method of communication to assist him in painstakingly completing a record of his life.
