SS FILM FESTIVAL SCREENING: THE HUNT
November 6, 2013 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm -
The Salt Spring Film Festival presents the 2012 Danish film The Hunt, directed by Thomas Vinterberg. Following a tough divorce, 40 year-old Lucas has a new girlfriend, a new job and is in the process of reestablishing his relationship with his teenage son, Marcus. But things go awry. Not a lot. Just a small comment. A random lie. And as the snow falls and the Christmas lights are lit, the lie spreads like an invisible virus. The shock and mistrust gets out of hand, and the small community suddenly finds itself in collective state of hysteria, while Lucas fights a lonely fight for his life and dignity.
