Stuck in a depressing and mind numbing routine, Pierre decides to trade the sweaty atmosphere of the factory for the conditioned air of a hotel room. Locked up with three other tenants in a dreary and dim-lighted suite, he is forced into an idle and aimless lifestyle, no more fruitful than the mindless hustle and bustle he left behind — that is, until this oppressive dullness gives birth to an idea…

Romain F. Dubois is a 25 year-old self-taught filmmaker from Montreal, Canada. He made his debut working on music videos among artists such as Milk and Bone, Brown Dead Obies and CRi. The common themes of loneliness and exile tint his creative persona. His hypnotic aesthetic serves the poetic visual identity he created through his series. His delivery is constant whereas his ideas are exponential.

Director and actor, Maxime Genois is a graduate of the Conservatory of Dramatic Arts of Montreal. He directed the short film “Le Clown” and staged many operas. He worked with renowned directors such as Denis Marleau, Catherine Vidal, Philippe Cyr. Xavier Dolan and Jonathan Beaulieu-Cyr. Reflecting his artistic journey, his direction of actors is both feverish and atypical.
