CANADA (QUÉBEC), 7 MIN, NO DIALOGUE
A young woman in ink drawing is destabilized by the arrival of paper breasts that are born on her chest and must quickly deal with these new foreign bodies. Her breasts lead her into increasingly unusual situations that reveal her deepest anxieties: the fear of becoming a woman, the apprehension of female rivalries, the taming of male desire, the worries of becoming a mother and finally the fear of cancer and a loss of bearings. Lolos is both a comic and dark journey exploring a woman's love-hate relationship with her body and femininity. It highlights the powerful symbolism that breasts evoke in everyone's eyes.

The Great Malaise
CANADA (QUÉBEC), 2019, 5 MIN, FRENCH, FRENCH SUBTITLES
A young woman tries to describe herself, presenting herself in an idyllic light: the one expected of her. The visual narration tells a different story, however, illustrating with poignant force the anxiety-inducing charge of hyperperformance and the race for happiness. A film that is both funny and touching, and above all, deeply human.
