With his complex and affecting second feature, Quebec’s Philippe Lesage establishes himself as one of the country’s most fascinating new filmmakers. Like his bracing debut LES DÉMONS (KCFF 2016), GENÈSE sees the director delve deep into the lives of young people as they face daunting and sometimes disturbing challenges on the precipice of adulthood. For each of the three main characters – including a teenager played by Theodore Pellerin, the rising star who gives an equally stunning performance at this year’s KCFF in CHIEN DE GARDE – the desire for love and connection leads to new discoveries and unexpected perils. Named one of Canada’s Top Ten in TIFF’s annual list and the top prize winner at Montreal’s Festival de Nouveau Cinéma, GENÈSE is a richly layered and provocative look at the hopes and pressures that accompany both adolescence and what comes after.
