Projected September 5 and September 7 in the Program 1 Canadian short films in the TIFF Bell Lightbox Cinema 4, he received an excellent reception and rave reviews.

«Denis Poulin and Martine Époque’s animation/motion capture of the finale of Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring demands a viewing on the big screen. Using light, darkness and vivid colours to make their gorgeously abstract animations pop, the two directors create a truly original and exhilarating short film». By C.J.

The engagement will be anything but shallow». Canada’s Dance Magazine, 360 Dance, Dancing the Rite of Spring Today: Bodies, Particles, Technologies and Affects, CODA Premieres at TIFF.
