DÉRIVE, directed by Quebec filmmaker, David Uloth, screened yesterday and completely charmed the audience at the Abitibi-Témiscamingue International Film Festival with its harsh and very moving story.
The film stars Mélissa Désormeaux-Poulin, Réal Bossé, Maeva Tremblay, Éléonore Loiselle and Emmanuel Schwartz, with screenplay by Chloé Cinq-Mars.
André has died due to sudden and nebulous circumstances. His younger daughter refuses to accept his death. His eldest daughter takes refuge in the arms of a lover old enough to be her father, and his wife tries to become head of the family. All three will have to learn to overcome this ordeal together.
Filmgoers gave a warm welcome to the film crew present in the room with a long ovation. In addition to the film’s quality, talented actresses, Maeva Tremblay and Éléonore Loiselle, delighted the Rouyn-Noranda audience. Filmgoers, clearly touched by their performances, rushed to meet the team as they left the theatre. The cast was moved and blown away by this show of affection.
DÉRIVE, distributed by Axia Films, is planned for release Winter 2019.
