Fantasia Presents The World Premiere of Art/Crime On July 28

The Fantasia Film Festival is presenting the World Premiere of Frederick Maheux’s (Théorie De La Religion) highly anticipated Art/Crime, as part of the Documentaries from the Edge section. Sound On Sight Radio listeners may remember some of the great documentaries we covered in the past such as Best Worst Movie, I Think We’re Alone Now, Marwencol and Second Skin. Fantasia is known for premiering some cutting edge docs, some of which have appeared on our end of year “Best OF” lists.

By addressing the controversial case of Rémy Couture, Art/Crime tackles issues surrounding representation of violence, fiction and censorship in cinema and on the Web. Online, the videos and photographic work of special effects artist Rémy Couture caught the attention of web users for their realism and graphic violence, so much so that a complaint was filed with Interpol. The arrest of the artist in 2009 launched a discussion in the media and the film presents not only the opinions of filmmakers and Couture’s live models, but also of the Montreal Police, criminalists and people from academic and political circles such as Robert Morin, Patrick Sénécal, Nacho Cerda, Rodrigo Gudino and Mario Dumont.

According to Simon Laperrière, programmer at the Fantasia Festival, Art/Crime is more than a portrait of the artist. “This necessary and universal work offers an in-depth analysis of critical issues directly affecting the art community as a whole. The Rémy Couture case raised several debates regarding freedom of expression as a moral right. Citing this case as a high-profile and current example of an alarming situation, this brilliantly put together documentary is a reflection as eloquent as it is unavoidable.”

Art/Crime will have its world premiere Thursday, July 28 at 7pm at Concordia University’s J.A. de Sève Theatre of Concordia University. Director Frédérick Maheux, Rémy Couture and many speakers featured in the documentary will attend the screening.

Here is the trailer.
