Filmmaker KARL LEMIEUX hails from Victoriaville, where he grew up attending FIMAV. He maintains multiple musical collaborations with the Montreal band Godspeed You! Black Emperor and its various spin-offs. His short film Mamori (with music by Francisco López) was screened at the 26th FIMAV in 2010. He recently released his first feature film, Shambles.
BENNY JONAS NILSEN is a master field recordist. A pupil of the great Chris Watson, he started out under the alias Hazard before changing his artist name to BJ NILSEN. He is mostly interested in the sound of nature and its effects on mankind. His striking sense of audio narrative can be heard on a string of influential albums released by Touch and Ash International.
LEMIEUX and NILSEN will be presenting two recent collaborations for five 16 mm projectors and soundtrack. The audiovisual source materials for « Unearthed » come from a landscape at the limits of industrialization and the wide expanses of the Arctic, on the Russian-Norwegian border. « Yujiapu » features a modern Chinese city that has been abandoned halfway through its construction. Two amply nuanced and deeply reflective works.

FIMAV AND CARRÉ 150's CINÉ-CLUB PRESENT: MAUDITE POUTINE (Shambles)
MONDAY MAY 15 - 7:30 PM
FRIDAY MAY 19 - 11 AM & 6:15 PM
Synopsis: Caught stealing drugs from the wrong people, 27 year old Vincent is in trouble and on the run from the local mob. Fleeing to the backwoods, Vincent unexpectedly reconnects with his brother Michel with whom he'd cut ties many years ago. As he tries to maintain the semblance of a normal life hanging out with friends and playing in his band, Vincent witnesses his brother's own turbulent downward spiral. MAUDITE POUTINE (Shambles) draws us into a darkly dystopian rural world, a place in which violence pervades the everyday but humanity still manages to shine through the cracks.
