Escape (évasion) - 2018 ( Writer/director)

Jean, a Montreal-based DJ, buys a fixed-gear bike on a whim and attempts to cycle across Canada and to the Arctic in the winter. 17,000 km later, as Jean pushes into the Arctic in -30C temperatures and 30km/hr winds, things start fall apart. His journey -- both bleak and beautiful -- is a meditation on expectation, failure and finding the drive to keep going.

The film, produced by MEC  and shot over 4 days in the Arctic and Montreal, is currently in festivals worldwide but will be online by mid-2018.
