Incendies: A chance to see Denis Villeneuve’s Academy nominated film and where his impressive career began. Incendies is a multi-layered narrative that spans both numerous countries and characters over various timelines. Villeneuve controls his film perfectly as the mystery that lays at the heart of this tale about family, war, life and death wraps us in its web and then gradually allows us to see the complexities of the past. It is a story of twins Jeanne and Simon Marwan trying to uncover the secret of their father they’ve never met and finding a brother they never knew they had after their Middle Eastern born mother dies. Incendies becomes so much more than a typical family drama as it showcases time in the conflict between Israeli and Palestine as well as the twins journey back to their country of nationality. A stunning and powerful epic
