THE HUNGRY
LES AFFAMÉS
2017, 100 min, Canada, Dir: Robin Aubert

In the provincial Quebec countryside, three survivors of a plague - a businesswoman with odd bloodlust, a young man who seems to have come to terms with the ongoing apocalypse, and a guilt-ridden young boy from a local farm - cross paths. Their journey together will lead them to understand not only the plague but one another, and the answers they find will not be easy or pleasant. With its ragtag group of characters running the gamut of Canadian society, whose interactions reflect the political systems in play, Aubert’s take on the zombie myth is full of local flavor that translates into stunning, surreal imagery.
