Directed by Sophie Bédard Marcotte
Produced by Pierre-Mathieu Fortin
Projet fantômes is a poetic, witty documentary about the complexities of the creative process and the quest for meaning. Filmmaker Sophie Bédard Marcotte shadows her neighbour, the young playwright and director Gabriel Plante, as he works on a play based on the myth of Sisyphus.
This new installment in Marcotte’s original and daring oeuvre examines the work of an artist with a contagious sense of humour whose goals are similar to her own and who seeks transcendence through a creative process that, while lo-fi and artisanal, in no way lacks depth or meaning.
