Director: Guylaine Dionne.
Every Wednesday, Rose cleans the house of a man she has never met. There, she slowly discovers his universe: a world with which she becomes infatuated, developing a true love relationship full of sensuality, fantasy and hopefulness.

Four Days of Therapy for the Population

Montreal's Concordia University is filled with creative, ambitious and radical young artists and academics. The Students of Philosophy Association, SoPhiA, is reaching out to this rich and varied community with their first Film Festival. Over the course of four days, the festival organizers aim to screen at least twelve outstanding films from around the world:

"We are looking for short films of all kinds (shorts, fiction, documentary, and everything in between) to be shown at the festival, titled "Four Days of Therapy for the Population". It is a festival which should be the basis for questioning the human condition. We want to create a place where questions are posed, and discussion blooms. The major themes are centered around relational human experience: in relation to oneself, (identity), to others, and finally in relation to the objective world."

Any and all submissions will be considered (French or English)

Audience votes for their favourite of the fest!
