Atlantic Film Fest: Friday's picks 

Death, lightning, death, death and Ethan Hawke!

How are you going to spend your first full day of the Atlantic Film Fest? Here's where you'll find us:

Act of God (7pm, Park Lane 4): Lightning only needs to strike once to have a life-changing impact. Jennifer Baichwal (Manufactured Landscapes) speaks to survivors in this gorgeous documentary.

Dede, a travers les brumes (7:15pm, Park Lane 3): The Quebecois music culture is fascinating, and this story, about the band Les Colocs and their charismatic but troubled singer Dede, gives some insight into this iconic Quebec band.

No subtitles in the trailer (there will be at the screening), time to practice your French!
I Killed My Mother/j'ai tue ma mere (9:35pm, Park Lane 3): Cannes loved 20-year-old Quebecois writer/director/actor Xavier Dolan, and his semi-autobiographical tale of teenage angst.

Daybreakers (11:59pm, Oxford): Rumour has it that Ethan Hawke was spotted in the customs line at the Halifax airport last night, so maybe he'll sneak into the screening, after sunset. Hawke plays a conflicted vampire/scientist searching for a blood replacement for plasma-starved vamps.
