Director: Denis Côté Featuring: Robert Naylor, Josée Deschênes, Jean-Michel Anctil
The frigid, small Québécois village of Irénée-les-Neiges is ominously disrupted by the unexpected death of local teenage Simon Dubé in a fatal car accident. While the majority of the town is too stunned to discuss the circumstances surrounding the tragedy, the Dubé family and a handful of residents begin to report several sightings of strangers descending on the village. This quiet, dark narrative examines the insidious ability of grief to infiltrate an individual’s life and the lasting fog it can cast on a community. Introduction by Andrew Rodgers (VAFF)
