Spotlight on homegrown cinema
| 85 minutes | 2018
The heroes of this inventive film are kids and teenagers from Pontiac in the Outaouais, a land of lakes and rivers light years away from the big city. They are smart-alecky Lindsay, left on her own when her father goes off hunting, and her friend Justine, a child of hippies who, by some miracle, wins the lottery. They are also all the others captured by the delicate, close-up camera work in this début film that tackles a challenging genre, docufiction.
