The Demons (Canada)

The Demons, a Canadian drama, written and directed by the rising star filmmaker Philippe Lesage ( San Francisco Film Society's Golden Gate New Directors Prize), explores the darkest depths of the human soul, as seen through the perspective of a young boy anxiously witnessing a wave of child abductions in his town. Based in part on Quebecois filmmaker Philippe Lesage’s own childhood experience - though that experience was not as dramatic as the film - The Demons offers an extraordinary examination of childhood fears and of the anxiety associated with a nascent sexuality.
