Synopsis

This film is available online HERE

World Premiere

Working at the intersection of contemporary dance, street dance and martial arts, the free-spirited Tentacle Tribe creates a physical score that echoes the subtle pulse of respiration. Jean-Sébastien Ouellet’s poetic documentary gives centre stage to the body and its powerful synergy with music and breath. Making its global premier, GHOST unveils an energetic, almost architectural dance. From technical feats to dreamlike sequences, GHOST is a welcome breath of air.

Directors

Jean-Sébastien Ouellet

Canadian producer and director Jean-Sébastien Ouellet had an early career in the design, ad and marketing industries prior to launching his production company AIDIA, in 2005. He makes a statement of exploring arts, creativity and their positive benefits on creators and the public. Music, dance, theater, circus arts, visual arts and social issues are his favorite subjects. For each show, documentary or interview he does, he wishes to have a sensitive eye, a relevant angle on contemporary issues as long as meeting with inspiring people. Documentaries 5 JOURS (ARTV, TV5 Monde, 2018), L’Art fait du bien/Art Is Good for You 1, 2, 3 (Télé-Québec, 2016, 2015, 2014), television shows CRÉER (ARTV, 2012) and CABINE C (ARTV, 2007-2008) are among what he has produced in the past decade. He is also known for – what he calls a «mission» - filming performing arts (plays and dance shows, for instance), so they can be seen by a wider audience (on CBC, ARTV) and have the chance to reach sustainability, in a way, not only in our memory. Gémeaux nominee, Jean-Sébastien Ouellet is also a pianist who often composes scores for the documentaries and TV shows he directs and produces.
