Two works by young Québec filmmakers will be shown this week during the Atlanta Film Festival.
“y20”, by multimedia artist Dominique T.Skoltz, an evocative piece of experimental cinematography featuring presenter/actress Vanessa Pilon and composer/dancer Jacques Poulin-Denis, will be screened on Thursday, April 3, 7:00 PM, at the Goat Farm Arts Center’s Rodriguez Room. The film was previously shown last fall at the Festival du nouveau cinéma in Montréal. Ms. Skoltz is known for installations, performances and films that delve into the organic relationship between sound and image. Her works have been presented on the international media arts circuit in Asia, Europe, and North and South America and have garnered numerous awards.
"Déjà-vu" by Jean-Guillaume Bastien, who directed and wrote the script, is a short film inspired as the name suggests, by the strange feeling of déjà vu. It features five women who share that surreal sensation. The film received the Special Jury Mention at the Montréal’s Festival des Films de la Relève in 2013 and was shown at the Toronto International Film Festival, the Los Angeles Film Festival and the Edinburgh International Film Festival. “Déjà vu” will be screened at 7 STAGES, Main Stage, on Friday, 7PM.
