After Sundance and Telluride, Canadian director François Jaros arrives in Cannes with his new short film Oh What A Wonderful Feeling

Canadian director François Jaros comes to Cannes with his most recent film Oh What a Wonderful Feeling that will have its World Premiere on Sunday 15th May at the Critic’s Week in Cannes. François Jaros’ short films include Daytona (2012), Life’s a Bitch (Toutes des Connes) (2014) and Maurice (2015).

His films were presented in such festivals as Sundance and Telluride, and won several awards including two back-to-back Best short film awards at the Gala du cinema Quebecois in 2015 and 2016.

“There is a long and strong tradition in cinema, from Murnau to Lynch, as an art of the every-day-life mystery, the most likely to capture the famous “disquieting strangeness” present in a certain literature which knows how to stir up secrets, fear, fascination amidst the most trivial scenery. By turning a highway stop into the theatre of an elliptic confrontation between man and the machine, the Canadian Francois Jaros perfectly integrates this line of descent, projecting a possible and (of course) terrifying future for it,” said Pierre-Simon Gutman for the Critics’ Week

Oh What a Wonderful Feeling was produced by La Boîte à Fanny, a Montreal film production company founded by Fanny-Laure Malo. She has produced a dozen of short films and two features including Sarah prefers to run, which was selected at « Un certain regard » in 2013. Fanny-Laure Malo is the daughter of the veteran Canadian producer René Malo who came to Cannes on many occasions (Le Déclin de l’empire américain, 1986 ; Les Portes tournantes, 1988).
