The Journey (Canada)
Director: Ève Saint-Louis
Cast: Ève Saint-Louis, Claude Laroche, Catherine Chabot
After a year away from home, Chantale, who now lives and studies in Paris, returns to Quebec City to spend the holidays with her mother and sister. Against all odds, her estranged father has offered to pick her up at the airport and drive her there. Hesitant to see him again, she accepts his offer nonetheless.
Winner of the Award of Excellence at Global Shorts 2021 and nominated for the Grand Jury Award for Narrative Shorts at SXSW 2021, The Journey tells the story of their reunion: a path strewn with obstacles, where nothing goes as planned. As night falls and her father deviates from the planned route, Chantale will be faced with the hold he has on her, and will need to take action.
