A hypnotic tale of man versus nature, Calgary Cinematheque presents the Calgary Premiere of an unforgettable Cannes prizewinner.

Series - Contemporary World Cinema

Directed by Oliver Laxe | France/Spain/Luxembourg | 85 mins.

Winner of the Jury Prize of the Un Certain Regard Section at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival, Calgary Cinematheque is thrilled to present the Calgary premiere of Fire Will Come (2019). The latest film from Oliver Laxe follows a middle-aged man who returns from prison to his rural Galacian home after having provoked a fire. Life with his elderly mother initially follows the calm rhythms of nature until one night, where a fire starts to devastate the region. At a brisk 85 minutes, this hypnotic tale of man versus nature is a slow burn that begs to be seen and heard on the big screen.


Our Contemporary World Cinema Series showcases films from the most recent festival circuit that haven’t screened in Calgary, parsing the critical discourse and following the development of key artists. Meticulously handpicked throughout the year, these selections bring fresh and important films to Calgary that would not make it here otherwise, and often never screen again. Last season we presented a diverse sampling of exciting and timely works from China, Switzerland, the Ukraine, Iran, and South Korea. You can be certain that equal riches are once again in store.

About Calgary Cinematheque

We are a non-profit film society dedicated to presenting significant, challenging, and essential works of cinema art in Calgary. During our season, which runs from October to April, we screen films weekly, in curated programs which situate each film in a thematic and historical context. We do this because we believe cinema is an essential form of artistic, social, and political expression. Audiences should be able to engage with a wide range of cinematic expression, not only with what is commercially viable. We believe in the power of sharing these experiences with other people in a theatrical setting and we strive to cultivate a community around that experience.
