The Facts in the Case of Mister Hollow

a narrative film in no language

After having the honor of being the official selection of over 50 International Film Festivals and being a Genie Nominee right here in our home and native land... I'm happy to present...

The Facts In The Case Of Mr Hollow

Starring Julian Richings, Alan Alderton and Lea Lawrynowicz
Art Direction by Vincent Marcone
Produced by Marco Pecota
Written by Rodrigo Gudiño
Directed by Rodrigo Gudiño and Vincent Marcone

An image that tells an entire story, THE FACTS IN THE CASE OF MISTER HOLLOW centers on a single photograph that dates back to the early 1930s. As the camera begins to investigate the particulars of the photo, however, it reveals a tapestry of secrets hidden in the details, and a tale of murder, kidnapping and sacrifice captured in a haunting moment.

Next Floor

a narrative film in no language

De Denis Villeneuve
D'après une idée originale de Phoebe Greenberg

Au cours d’un opulent et luxueux banquet, onze convives, servis sans retenue par des valets et des serviteurs attentionnés, participent à un étrange rituel aux allures de carnage gastronomique. Dans cet univers absurde et grotesque, une succession d’événements viendra secouer la procession de cette symphonie d’abondance.

Présenté dans plus de 200 festivals de par le monde.

A reçu près de 60 prix internationaux, dont :

Prix Canal + du Meilleur Court Métrage, Semaine de la Critique du Festival de Cannes 2008

Prix Génie et Jutra du meilleur court métrage dramatique (2009)

By Denis Villeneuve
Based on an original idea by Phoebe Greenberg

During an opulent and luxurious banquet, complete with cavalier servers and valets, eleven pampered guests participate in what appears to be a ritualistic gastronomic carnage. In this absurd and grotesque universe, an unexpected sequence of events undermines the endless symphony of abundance.

Shown in over 200 festivals worldwide.

Winner of nearly 60 international prizes, amongst others:

Prix Canal + for best short film, Semaine de la Critique, Cannes Film Festival 2008

Genie and Jutra Awards for Best Live Action Short Drama (2009)

" C4 " [ Action Short-Film ] [En Ttitles]

a narrative film in no language


Under the scorching sunshine in a barren desert, a car is capsized. Four people have lain down, while the tyres are burning and a thick smoke is spiraling up the sky.
Some unknown people, equipped with stealthy monitoring systems are investigating them via satellite cameras.
Suddenly, the alarms start wailing, indicating four people are still alive. The command center immediately dispatches some motor riders with warfare equipment to attack on them.
