The Tournées Festival/Film Today: 'Curling'
CalArts, Bijou Theater
2010 / 92 min.
FILM/VIDEO: Denis Côté’s singular fifth film, set in a bleak, rural town in Québec, focuses on the odd, touching relationship between Jean-François and his 12-year-old daughter, Julyvonne. Julyvonne, confined to the house by her pathologically overprotective father, keeps herself occupied by reading and, occasionally, by talking to the corpses she finds in the woods near her home. After the arrival of Isabelle, their relationship will take another direction.
This event is part of The Tournées Festival, the weekly series of new French films on campus.
