LA DEMOISELLE SAUVAGE

Festival-goers who had the good fortune to see Lea Pool's haunting "Straight for the Heart" at the 13th CIFF (1988) will be first in line for her most recent film. After narrowly escaping death in a violent confrontation, a traumatized young woman flees to the mountains, where she wanders aimlessly for days. She is discovered by a man who helps her regain her strength, and who eventually earns her confidence. Amid this idyllic setting they soon fall in love, but their happiness does not last for long- the police are hunting a young woman accused of murder. Lea Pool's remarkable insights into the intricacies of human nature, and her breathtaking visual style, vividly confirm her standing as one of Canada's most gifted filmmakers.
