Yukon Arts Centre

Weeks after the outbreak of a zombie plague a handful of survivors in rural Quebec try to stay ahead of the ravenous undead. Bonin and Vézina roam the country roads in a pick up truck, rifle in hand. Their goal: to find survivors of the zombie epidemic. The two men are not alone. Celine, on board her commercial vehicle, avenges the death of her family by drawing in zombies whom she slaughters with machetes. Further in the woods an old man and a boy are fleeing the threat. In a nearby country house, two elderly ladies are waiting for the migratory route of the undead which have cut their area off from the rest of the world. Bonin takes a girl and a young woman under his wing. As time passes, the paths of all these individuals will converge. In French with English subtitles. Producer Stéphanie Morisette in attendance Won Best Canadian Feature Film at TIFF and selected for Canada's Top Ten 10 of 2017. On ne sait ni comment ni pourquoi. Mais quelque part dans la campagne québécoise, une mystérieuse épidémie a transformé la plupart des habitants en zombies. Pour les survivants, en particulier du côté du rang 8, commence un grand jeu de survie dont peu se sortiront indemnes. Sacré meilleur film canadien au dernier Festival de Toronto, prix du public au Festival du nouveau cinéma, Les affamés de Robin Aubert plonge Marc-André Grondin, Monia Chokri, Micheline Lanctôt et Brigitte Poupart en plein territoire du film de genre, grâce à une mise en scène d’une efficacité, d’un humour et d’un aplomb redoutables.
