La Fonceuse

Everybody walks a certain way, some walk slowly, some really fast, and some even stop constantly either lost or contemplative. For Ratel, it says a lot about people and this is something that crosses her mind a lot. While she walks up an endless stairway, she stops and meets someone that makes her doubt the way she perceives the world.

Director Biography - Dominique Montesano

As a director I’m pretty versatile. It’s only natural as I am a multi medium artist in my everyday life. I perceive myself to be someone with an aching need and desire to create. I think about future projects constantly and can’t sleep without scheming up another. When I am without a project, I am without purpose. I have been like this ever since I was a child. I challenge myself everyday, through news mediums, concepts, and mostly i’m inspired by my own limitations. I’ve been working with digital cameras since I was kid. Although, I go backwards with technology advancement in my career. Working predominately in analog film, I capture motions frame by frame. A lot has to go down in order for me to accomplish this, the sun and light being my biggest obstacles. Yet I love how uneasy it is to shoot on film in this industry. I don’t shoot film to make money, I do it to keep it alive. That’s something about me, I love a challenge.

Director Statement

This is for those who get suspicious by comfortable scenarios with strangers in public, who love a little bit of mystery and mind/game play. It's also an ever so nostalgic tribute to the never ending escalator in the Beaudry metro station. Which leads right to the gay village of Montreal.
