SYNOPSIS

December 24, 1983, 10:50 p.m.; Julie and her cousins ate too much sugar, Santa Claus is late and Denis, alone in his car, is anxious at the idea of setting foot in his ex-in-law’s house to pick up his children. Les grandes claques is an early coming-of-age that is as squeaky as it is poetic.

DIRECTOR’S BIOGRAPHY

Annie St-Pierre was born in St-Pascal-de-Kamouraska and studied film at the Université du Quebec at Montreal. A documentary filmmaker fascinated by the parallel worlds that populate ordinary life, she has directed Migration amoureuse, a co-production with France and Belgium that won the Pierre Perrault Best Documentary Hope Award, and Fermières, a feature film presented at the closing of the RIDM and widely distributed in Quebec theatres. Her first short fiction film 让-马克-瓦雷 won the Best French-language screenplay award at the Regard Festival. An apostle of independent cinema, she also collaborates as a script advisor, casting director, actress or producer with directors who inspire her, including Matthew Rankin, Denis Côté and Monia Chokri.
