Spotlight on our cinema
QUéBEC, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada | 101 minutes | 2019
Jackie, a teen in late-80s Newfoundland, is dealing with the trials of adolescence – friendship, dating, wanting to belong vs. having to conform – as she comes to grips with her emerging womanhood. In parallel, Dennis, a lonely outcast, struggles with his increasingly dark fantasies. What will happen when their paths cross? Nicole Dorsey’s debut feature, remarkably nuanced, reinvents the coming-of-age movie, using The Rock’s brooding magnificence to breathtaking effect. Ella Ballentine as the young Jackie looking to follow her own star is a revelation.Q&A with the cast and crew on October 13th and 14th“A striking calling card for its talented maker” Screen Daily"Black Conflux is a constant visual delight" The Hollywood Reporter“Writer/Director Dorsey places us in a world seething with menace and tense spaces" NOW Magazine“The final scenes are a startling blend of suspense and grace” Original Cin
