Ève Lamont’s Le Commerce du Sexe (The Sex Trade) screening at venues across Quebec this fall

Ève Lamont’s documentary Le commerce du sexe (The Sex Trade) will play in cities across Quebec starting September 14, with screenings continuing throughout the fall. In total, the film will be shown in French in at least nine of the province’s regions and 15 of its cities-Terrebonne, La Malbaie, Baie-Saint-Paul, Val-d’Or, Rouyn-Noranda, Ville-Marie, Montreal, Cowansville, Granby, Sherbrooke, Trois-Rivières, Sainte-Anne-des-Monts, Rimouski, Odanak and Gatineau-as well as in Ottawa, Ontario. Each screening will be followed by a talk, many of which will feature the filmmaker. Several screenings will also feature workers from local aid centres known as CALACS (Centres d’aide et de lutte contre les agressions à caractère sexuel), as part of an effort to raise awareness about women victims of violence. Audiences across the province will have a chance to see the uncut version of Le commerce du sexe on the big screen and get a better understanding of the realities of the local and regional sex trade, in addition to learning more about Lamont’s approach to making the film.
