QUéBEC/CANADA | 76 minutes | 2018

For his second feature, Félix Dufour-Laperrière turns to animated fiction, mingling the personal, the collective and the political. In the midst of the 1995 referendum, a couple of intellectuals get back together on the shores of the Gaspé Peninsula and the father tries to make peace with his son. Ambitious and subtle, Ville Neuve is a story of emotional rifts, dashed artistic aspirations and a nationalist dream derailed. Thousands of fabulously rendered and madly poetic drawings form the template for this story of a family and a near-country trying, with sublime urgency, to start over.
