Jules' Impossible Summer

Jules' Impossible Summer

Shot in Montreal over a four-month period, from May to September 2020, Jules’ Impossible Summer charts the evolving relationship between the filmmaker and her 19-year-old son through 15 redundant conversations about the importance—or the impossibility, depending on the point of view—of following the health restrictions imposed during the pandemic.

Part of THE CURVE, a collection of social distancing stories that bring us together. Enjoy more works from this series here .
