Canada | 2023 | 5 min
Reminiscent of a student’s journey arriving at the end of her studies at Westmount Park School, this Westmount’s building in a style referring to the British Mock Tudor and Late Gothic revival movements, with its stone and brick materials, an imposing architectural style inspired by castles, fortresses, and churches.

This time, Les Rugissants share the stage with the English Montreal School Board Youth Choral and the Cobalt Quartet, performing an excerpt from Giovanni Battista Pergolesis Stabat Mater.

Elias Djemil-Matassov

Elias Djemil is a director, designer, photographer and documentary filmmaker with multiple identities. A polyglot of Russian-Algerian origin, his background shows a versatility and a capacity for adaptation, as evidenced so far by a body of internationally awarded works. Whether in the context of an experimental dance short film on a ballet dancer during the Holocaust (Franciszka) or in the context of a documentary on contemporary Algerian music (The Rhythm of Time), he loves to explore, paint and pay tribute to human creativity in all its facets.
