La Cartographe

by Nathan Douglas

#07 /23 | available until February 13


Canada  ·  2018  ·  DCP  ·  Color  ·  34'  ·  o.v. English/French

A young woman investigates her neighbour and his wildly boring running route. As she uncovers his ritual path through a forgotten urban environment, a world of contradictions, beauty, history and amnesia emerges.

Selected in the Pardi di domani International competition 2018

Director Nathan Douglas, whose short films have received worldwide recognition, proposes in 'La Cartographe' to see beyond what an everyday, seemingly banal landscape teaches us. Through the eyes of a teenage girl and a seemingly banal incident, an almost religious dimension sets in throughout the film which, by evoking Canada's colonial and industrial history, slightly reveals to us what the landscape seemed to be trying to hide or wanting to forget.
