Le Vendeur (The Salesman)
Saturday, February 16, 9PM
Sunday, February 17, 3PM
Winter in Québec: snow, arctic sunshine, snowmobiles, car windshields in need of scraping, potlucks, polka, ice fishing, and of course, hockey. The oppressive monotony of small-town life is seen through the eyes of car salesman Marcel. Sébastien Pilote, in his first feature film, succeeds in making us palpably aware of the vagaries of human existence and our reasons for living.
Presented with the generous support of the Québec Government Office in Chicago.
