In Irénée-les-Neiges, a small, isolated town with a population of 215, Simon Dubé dies in a car accident. The stunned townspeople are reluctant to discuss the circumstances of the tragedy. From that point on, for the Dubé family as well as for Mayor Smallwood and a handful of others, time seems to lose all meaning, and the days stretch on without end. Something descends slowly upon the area. In this period of mourning and in this fog, strangers start to appear. Who are they? What is happening?

Denis Côté

GTA director Denis Côtè @Lou_Scamble

Since 2005, Denis Côté has gained a solid reputation as an independent filmmaker on both the local and international scenes. After directing many short films and working a few years as a journalist and film critic (1995-2005), he makes his feature film debut with Drifting States. Winner at the Locarno Film Festival and elsewhere, he follows up with Our Private Lives (2007), that also tours the international festival circuit. In 2008, All that She Wants wins the directing prize at Locarno. Carcasses (2009) is presented at Cannes’ Directors’ Fortnight. In 2010, Curling wins the Best Director and Best Actor awards at Locarno. In 2012, Denis Côté offers a film-essay entitled Bestiaire, that receives unexpected praise (over a 100 international festivals) and is theatrically released in France, the US and Germany. In 2013, Vic+Flo Saw A Bear premieres in Competition at the prestigious Berlinale. Côté wins the Silver Bear for Innovation (Alfred Bauer Preis) and Pierrette Robitaille wins Quebec’s Best Actress award. In 2016, Boris without Beatrice is selected at the Berlinale. Denis Côté continues in 2017 with a film-essay on the world of bodybuilding: A Skin So Soft is selected for the International Competition of the 70th Locarno Film Festival. Since 2009, Denis Côté’s work has been the subject of some twenty rétrospectives around the world. Ghost Town Anthology is his 11th feature film.
