Les Films du 3 Mars and Les Rapailleurs are proud to present In Broad Daylight, a psychological drama written and directed by Emmanuel Tardif (Speak Love, Heirdoms). The film will have its World Premiere at the 56th Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, taking place July 1-9 in the Czech Republic. It will be shown in the Proxima competition, a new section that brings together daring works by emerging filmmakers and renowned auteurs. For the occasion, the filmmaker and members of his team will be present during the screenings.

Starring Amaryllis Tremblay, Karine Gonthier Hyndman, David Savard, Elijah Patrice, Jean-Simon Leduc and Marianne FortierIn Broad Daylight follows a young girl who, after giving birth to her child in the living room of an opulent suburban house, decides to go in search of the father. Will she prevent the family fabric from tearing and the walls from cracking?

Emmanuel Tardif approaches cinema as a journey into the unspoken corners of contemporary society and the human behaviours that inhabit them. In this third feature film, the 27-year-old filmmaker returns to the themes of family, rurality, identity and youth in a free, singular work. Shot in 14 days with a self-financed budget of $40,000, In Broad Daylight once again demonstrates the creative force of its auteur and the collective Les Rapailleurs.

This prestigious selection at Karlovy Vary validates the organization’s desire to further support the work of fiction filmmakers, in order to showcase the talent and audacity of creators of all genres, in Quebec and abroad.
