Filmmaker’s statement

Patrick Aubert says:

“I made this film in one week during the Kino Kabaret of Montreal, a 10-day event organized by Kino, a group of young filmmakers. Each year, it gathers filmmakers and actors from around the world. More than 40 short films are made during that period.

I was inspired by my own grandmother who considers her dog as her child. She also has a very special way of seeing the outside world.

I mixed her personal experiences with my passion for action films, especially the Jason Bourne trilogy directed by the amazing Paul Greengrass. My film deals with dementia and paranoia in a humorous way, but is ultimately very sad.

It’s pretty tragic, actually.”
