Film: HOAX CANULAR
Conquering fear by manufacturing scares: that's what the teens in Hoax_Canular do with their webcams, unleashing rumours of the end of the world. Dominic Gagnon continues his work with amateur online videos; this new installment hits the cycle's most serious, yet also lightest, note yet. The teens in question give new meaning to online sharing; we never know where parody ends and sincerity begins. Constructed as a countdown to the presumed end of the world, the film is much more: its editing results in a profound reflection on how young people are appropriating the angst being stoked by the media. Ultimately, their fear rituals are just another way to envision the future.

In person: filmmaker Dominic Gagnon.  Dominic Gagnon is an inventor, director, installer and active performer. He considers cinema as a technique for measuring the immeasurable or as a discipline of chaos. Since 1996, he has made public presentations of moving images, has invented machines and concepts, performs sound works, built facilities and creates performances in various galleries, festivals and biennials around the world. To carry out his projects, Gagnon has conducted research about the decline of economies, terror, violence and identity crisis among boys, the international adoption systems, information disorder and homelessness, Sado-Masochism and fetishism in popular culture and the family in the era of mega-entertainment.
