Ghost Town Anthology (Répertoire des villes disparues)
- This event has passed.
In the small, snow-covered Quebecois outpost of Irénée-les-Neiges, a car crashes, leaving its 21-year-old driver dead. The casualty’s parents and his older brother struggle with whether it was an accident or suicide, as his behaviour and mental state suggest the latter. The death draws attention in a place with a population of just 215 people, and as civic figures debate how best to deal with the communal grief, reports of static, silent figures visiting the village increase. This moody, magnificent feature from maverick auteur Denis Côté subverts genre conventions to create a ghost story that is striking, original and utterly mesmerising. MH
