Quebec director Denis Villeneuve’s film “Incendies” (which I saw the other day at the TIFF Lightbox) has been nominated for an Academy Award. It’s based on the play of the same title by Wajdi Mouawad, and we have the English translation of the play at Laidlaw Library: Scorched.

This is the fifth time a Canadian film has been nominated for Best Foreign Language Film; the other nominees were “Le Déclin de l’empire américain”, “Jésus de Montréal”, “Les Invasions barbares” (which went on to win the Oscar), and “Water”.
