Les Battues (The Fading)
In the heart of a foggy and rural Quebec winter, Luce, a grieving mother faced with the disappearance of her son, is taken aback when three local hunters track down the alleged killer, a seemingly harmless young man. When it is proposed to her to take revenge on the latter, the spirit of the masses slowly takes possession of her tragedy as the group sinks into the forest. "Les Battues" blurs the line between victim and persecutor in a dreamlike and anxiety-inducing thriller.
