Canada’s Top Ten: Roads in February (Les routes en février)

Thu, Jan 17 / 9 pm
Sat, Jan 19 / 9 pm
Directed by Katherine Jerkovic
2018, Canada / Uruguay, 82 min
French and Spanish with English subtitles

In Katherine Jerkovic’s enthralling debut feature, a young woman struggles to rekindle her relationship with her paternal grandmother and her home country while mourning the death of her father. While still in mourning, Sarah travels from Montreal to a sleepy village in rural Uruguay to visit her father’s mother, Magda. Over a decade ago, Sarah and her parents left Uruguay and never returned. Driven by childhood memories, she hopes to renew her relationship with Magda and with her home country.


Canada‘s Top Ten Film Festival returns for the 18th year with a diverse and compelling line up of features and shorts. In January and February, we will present the first part of this program. It will be continued later in March to June. This series is generously sponsored by IATSE 856 and William F. White International.

        

Reviews

Roads in February closes with a lovely tableau that reunites grandmother and granddaughter in a shared and quite intimate activity that suggests they've grown at least a little closer. In the background the warm and gentle rain can be seen falling outside. It’s a gorgeously domestic scene.
