Marina Antunes [Celluloid 06.15.11] Canada movie trailer news drama

Quebec has been doing a great job of fostering a wave of young directors who take a quiet, self assured approach to material. By this point, everyone's either seen, or at least heard of, Xavier Dolan who made a big splash with 2009's I Killed my Mother and last year, I was introduced to another up and coming talent by the name of Maxime Giroux whose debut Jo for Jonathan (review) stood out among a great line-up of films at the Whistler Film Festival. With the release of a teaser trailer for Guy Édoin's full length debut Marécages, it looks like we have a trifecta.

Édoin's family drama takes place in the Eastern Townships of Quebec, allowing for some gorgeously haunting images. Not too many details on the plot but Telefilm describes is as " On a dairy farm in the Eastern Townships, in the middle of a drought and while the land is parched, a drama will disrupt the life of the Santerre family. Confronted to each other, they will have to learn to forgive."

The film, which stars Quebec stars Pascale Buissieres, Luc Picard and Gabriel Maille, is scheduled for release later this year.
