noun. Force of mouvement. Impulse.
An engineer (Emmanuel Schwartz) abandoned by his lover, a filmmaker (Jennifer Alleyn) losing her character, an actress friend in self-reflection (Pascale Bussières), a musician-philosopher who put away his guitar (J. Reissner), they all hit a wall. IMPETUS follows, from Montreal to New York, four individuals colliding, each giving the other a new impulse, a liberating impetus.
In a free form that gives way to the creative process, IMPETUS combines documentary and autofiction, in an ode to the possibilities offered by the intervals between real and imaginary.
