Director

Denis CÔTÉ

Quebec’s acclaimed director Denis Cote gained international fame through his hybrid genre of poetic narrative and minimalism. He first engaged with Jeonju as <i>Drifting States</i> (2005) won the Woosuk Award and later directed <i>The Enemy Lines</i> (2010) for the Jeonju Digital Project. Cote’s films oscillate between fiction, documentary, and avant-garde. The documentary <i>Bestiaire</i> (2012) traces the lives of cows, radiating a serene beauty. His recent films were introduced in Jeonju: <i>Joy of Man´s Desiring</i> (2014) on the labor scene overwhelmed by machine sounds, <i>Boris Without Beatrice</i> (2016) on the existential crisis of a businessman, and <i>A Skin So Soft</i> (2017) on the self-mortifying lives of extreme bodybuilders. The Berlinale-nominated <i>Ghost Town Anthology</i> (2019) portrays the life of a lingering ghost. Cote recently finished his latest film, <i>Wilcox</i> (2019).
