Exclusive look at Canadian scifi film MARS ET AVRIL a graphic novel adaptation
Mars et Avril is a striking new Canadian
science fiction film, currently in post-production. The feature film
about a future where people are emigrating to Mars is based on the
graphic novels of the same name and is written, produced and directed by
newcomer Martin Villeneuve who was kind enough to pass along some
stills from his film and give us an update on where production's at...
and if you're wondering why the film looks so visually interesting, it's
because Belgian comic book artist Francois Schuiten, who has worked on
film's such as Golden Compass and Mr. Nobody) is on production design
To get the world of Mars et Avril just right, the
film was shot almost entirely on green screen and with a budget of $2
million - a decent size for a Canadian production - Villeneuve was
actually able to do the technique justice.
Mars et Avril takes place in a Montreal of the future when humanity is
ready to move to Mars. But, not everyone is ready to go. Jacob Obus, a
charismatic and beloved septuagenarian, leader of the anti-cybernetic
movement, takes pride in slowing down time. He plays captivating music
on instruments inspired by womenâ€™s bodies and designed by his friend,
It's when Jacob and Arthur are smitten by Avril, a
young and short-winded photographer, that the true nature of the old
sex symbol is revealed. After making love for the first time in his
life, Jacob is ready to leave for Mars in search of his muse. In the
midst of everything arrives Eugène Spaak, inventor, cosmologist and
Arthur’s father, who maintains that Mars is only a chimera.
Mars et Avril stars Jacques Languirand, Caroline Dhavernas, Paul Ahmarani and Robert Lepage and is set to be released in September 2012.
