51st Directors’ Fortnight May 15-25, 2019


Fortnight 2009, Feature film, 1h12


For more than 40 years now, Jean-Paul Colmor has collecting hundreds of automobile carcasses on his lot. More than just recycling and selling car parts, Colmor has created an unthinkable site, full of memories. Every day he visits his lot, carts scrap iron, inventories his parts and other rusting gems. His little house is no less strange: a kind of shelter where one can make out the kitchen, bathroom and bedroom in the jumble. One day, others arrive, eager to share some of Jean-Paul’s solitude and eccentric fringe existence.


Denis Côté

Born in New Brunswick (Canada) in 1973. He made some 15 short films between 1994 and 2007. He has worked as a journalist, head of the film pages for a Montreal arts weekly and served as vice president of the Association québécoise des critiques de cinéma (AQCC). His first two films were widely seen on the festival circuit. Elle veut le chaos, his third film, won the Prix de la mise en scène at the 61st Locarno Film Festival.
