Antigone PPR License (Public Performance Rights)
Available in the US only.
Please indicate if the event is private attendance only or open to the public. Our standard license for Film Festivals, Governmental Agencies, Universities, Educational Institutions, Conferences, National Non-Profits & For Profit Institutions
In order to screen ANTIGONE (or any film), a public performance license (PPR) is required. A PPR is required for any public screening event—including if at your home if invited guests extend beyond your immediate family or what is considered “personal use”--even if you have a DVD or have purchased an On Demand option. Since there is a sizable expense to produce and distribute a film, as well as to administer these programs, screening fees help to allay these costs.
This PPR license is meant for a one-time public, non-admission screening events for up to 250 people arranged by governmental agencies, conferences, national non-profits and for-profit institutions. The full fee will need to be paid in full before your screening. If the attendance will exceed 250 people, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for pricing options.
With this option, no admission can be charged, however you can:
1) accept donations at the event to defray costs or
2) resell copies of the DVD (available for bulk purchase at a significant discount by request).
This option includes DVD only.
Also available is DCP Format, for which there is an additional charge
These items must be returned after screening. Penalties will be incurred for failure to return.

2019 | Genre: Drama, Crime | Language: French with English subtitles
Director: Sophie Deraspe | TRT: 109 minutes | Format: HD Widescreen, 5.1 Audio
Featuring: Nahéma Ricci, Rawad El-Zein, Antoine DesRochers
Writer-director Sophie Deraspe’s incisive liberal adaptation of the Greek tragedy by Sophocles is the daring story of one young woman’s commitment to her family, even if it means sacrificing herself.
Newcomer Nahéma Ricci gives a stunning, luminous performance as Antigone, an Algerian-born teenager living in Montreal with her immigrant family. Her world is shaken when her oldest brother is wrongfully gunned down by police during the arrest of her other brother who, if convicted, faces deportation. She invents a fearless, dangerous plan to free him, but can it succeed?
As Antigone’s predicament intensifies and the consequences of her actions spiral out of control, the film deftly incorporates urgent and explosive contemporary questions of immigration and belonging, social media and identity, and the power of idealism.
