Canada, 2019, 66 mins.
DIRECTOR: Denis Côté
WITH: Guillaume Tremblay
Fresh from the Locarno Film Festival, Canadian director Denis Côté’s latest film centres on Wilcox, a man on the edge of society searching for sense to his existence. A solitary and mysterious man – a deserter, delinquent or survivalist – he quietly roams the wilderness in search of something, whether looking to put down roots or simply find freedom. Told entirely without dialogue, this is a powerful statement on social isolation.
All That Perishes at The Edge of Land

In this docu-fictional work, the container vessel Ocean Master is anthropomorphised and enters into a dialogue moving between dreams and desire, places that can be called home, and the structural violence embedded in the act of dismembering a ship.
