A highly acclaimed film, Incendies keeps the viewer guessing with its plot twists and turns. Canadian-born twins Jeannie and Simon learn at the reading of their mother’s will that they must find their father, who they had previously been led to believe is dead, as well as a brother they never knew they had. Such are the conditions before being allowed to see a final letter in the curious will, written by a mother with a history of psychological problems. The mother’s story, told in flashbacks against the grim backdrop of war in the Middle East, is interwoven with the twin’s desperate search for the truth. This movie is so beautifully filmed it is hard to imagine that it was originally staged as a play. Instructor Paul Marino will introduce the film, raise questions to ponder and host a post-viewing discussion.
