Impetus

Directed by Jennifer Alleyn

  • Canada 2018; 94 min
  • Original version: French, English
  • Genre: Documentary

Synopsis

Switching freely between fiction and documentary, self-portrait and poetic essay, Montreal and New York, in her latest film Jennifer Alleyn reflects on creativity, everyday poetry, solitude and the beauty of human contact. The film builds itself while we watch, as Alleyn puts herself in the frame, using experimentation to find a liberated cinema, which she achieves with the help of two actors, Emmanuel Schwartz and Pascale Bussières. A meditation on the actor’s role and the realities of fully independent cinema, IMPETUS celebrates listening to others, and the possibilities found in the interstices between reality and imagination.
