Sion Sono (Japan)

A spaceship in the shape of a Japanese bungalow crosses the galaxy. On board, a humanoid named Yoko, a sort of interstellar UPS delivery girl. His job is simple: to distribute parcels to human beings on various planets. But with so much free time between deliveries, she starts to wonder what’s in those packages.

When the ghost of a spaceship escapes, two hunters take off on an interstellar chase to capture the entity before it can flee to freedom. What if machines had souls? From Metropolis to The Matrix, from Winding Refn to 2001, this is an orgasmic journey into 80s movies and music.

all you can eat bouddha
Ian Lagarde (Québec)

Under the tropical sun, Mike slowly renounces his gluttony and is transformed through a series of encounters. A sensory extravaganza that’s equal parts Jodorowsky and Monty Python, All you can eat Bouddha is a darkly twisted existential tale that’s also surprisingly tender and tinged with mysticism.

Mathieu Denis et Simon Lavoie (Québec)

Klas Batalo, Giutizia, Tumulto and Ordine Nuovo, four Quebecers in their twenties, refuse the world as it is offered to them.Three years after the «Printemps Érable», and dissociating themselves from it, they embark on acts of vandalism that increasingly tend towards terrorism. But their revolutionary vanguard clearly does not reach the dominant aspirations of society and risks at any moment to burst in their faces.
