Inaugural Film Screening

Through film, Au Contraire strives to erase the stigma and to dispel the myths surrounding mental illness. In our Au Contraire sponsored community cinema events, the featured award winning films were nominated for their ability to raise questions and deepen reflections on dementia, as it is experienced by persons living with neurocognitive challenges, carers, and all of us. Les Arts et la Ville will facilitate the panel discussions about dementia, its depiction and our reflections on stigma.
