Set in a surface mine, two boys sink into a seemingly innocent power game with Mother Nature as the sole observer.

Director Biography – Jeremy Comte
Driven by a passion for Skateboarding, Jeremy Comte directed his first short documentary “Feel The Hill” at eighteen years old, landing him a world tour with the Banff Mountain Film Festival. Raised in the country side and later graduating from Concordia University in Film Production, his connection with nature and curiosity for the human condition deepened with his travels around the globe. Comte is roused by psychological, raw narratives finding meaningful connections through poetic imagery. His latest short fiction film “Fauve” will premiere at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival.
