Join us for a rare screening of this award-winning debut feature from Quebec-based filmmakers Jonathan Beaulieu-Cyr and Renaud Lessard.

Mad Dog Labine is a fiery and inventive docufiction that portrays two teenagers, played by two non-professional actors, living in a remote and underserved Canadian village on the border with Ontario. They get their hands on a winning lottery ticket and start imagining a different life for themselves. The film is in French with English subtitles.

A short Q&A with Beaulieu-Cyr, moderated in English, will follow the screening.

The event is also sponsored by the Association Internationale des Etudes Québécoies and the Comparative Literature program.
