Early Winter

FilmInk presents writer & director MICHAEL ROWE discussing his drama EARLY WINTER, following a special event screening on Tuesday October 4, 6.30pm. Hosted by film curator Richard Sowada. David, a man in his forties, lives a predictable life with his wife Maya and their two children. To please his wife with the latest gadgets, he works solitary shift work, days and nights, as a janitor in a retirement home. But when he begins to suspect that Maya is having an affair, he starts to lose ground, his past threatening to smash everything in his path. Written and directed by Australian ex-pat Michael Rowe (Caméra d’Or prize-winner for Leap Year), and starring Suzanne Clément (Mommy) and Paul Doucet, EARLY WINTER is a beautifully acted, intimate, truthful and emotional story about how we seek happiness through our romantic partnerships. Filmed entirely in Quebec, Early Winter is a Canadian/Australian co-production which won the prestigious Venice Film Festival Venice Days Award. Some French language, English subtitles.
