    Fiction

    Set in a surface mine, two boys sink into a seemingly innocent power game with Mother Nature as the sole observer. Alone in the wild, two boys play around a surface mine. Complicity evolves into a confrontation where one wants to have power over the other. When one suddenly gets caught in the quicksand, the debate ends. Taking proportions larger than nature, this game will not prove as harmless as they thought.

    Driven by a passion for Skateboarding, Jeremy Comte directed his first short documentary FEEL THE HILL at eighteen years old, landing him a world tour with the Banff Mountain Film Festival. Raised in the countryside and later graduating from Concordia University in Film Production, his connection with nature and curiosity for the human condition deepened with his travels around the globe. Comte is roused by psychological, raw narratives finding meaningful connections through poetic imagery. His latest short fiction film FAUVE will premiere at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival.
