CANADA 90 MIN, 2019


    • ABOUT

      Fifteen years after a psychotic event on the South China Sea flipped his life upside down, Alex, a sensitive, refined and schizophrenic man is at a crossroads. His grand-mother and confidante, who would like to die with peace of mind, insists that he tries to find a girlfriend. His encounter with a young psychotic woman gives birth to an ardently passionate relationship, making him slowly drift away from his usual emotional boundaries. While the South China Sea’s troubled waters well up in his mind, he gradually isolates himself, in danger of being swallowed by paranoia’s unfathomable abyss. An intimate odyssey, at once troubling and sublime.



      After collaborating with François Girard and Robert Lepage, visual artist Pedro Pires directed the short films Danse Macabre in 2008 which won 43 awards internationally, and HOPE in 2010, which won a Telefilm Canada prize for outstanding Canadian short. In 2012, he partnered with Lepage again to co-direct the feature film Triptych. The film received a “Honorable mention of the Ecumenical Jury” at the Berlinale International Film Festival. In 2019, his company released the documentary "Alexandre le fou" for which he acted as producer, writer and director. The film is nominated for 3 Canadian Screen Awards for Best Film, Best Images and Best Editing in a Feature Length Documentary at the next 2020 event.
