The meeting has inspired a short film in which the director wanted to strike the imagination : “The world of the fight is perfect, because there are characters inspired from mythology with a battle between the forces of good and evil. I wanted to push further this concept and to identify with our own inner struggle. “The fight will be screened on Friday, October 12, at 19: 30, at la Nouvelle Scène Gilles Desjardins. Leah Pascal will be present during the viewing session. The Festival’s Visual will be held from 12 to 14 October.
