Dys-, the feature film debut of Canadian filmmaker Maude Michaud, will be having its World Premiere at the prestigious Fantasia International Film Festival in Montreal on August 1st, 7:30PM.
To celebrate, a new official trailer has just been released:
Here’s the official synopsis:
A strange disease is plaguing the city. Hoping to escape contamination, Eva and Sam, an estranged married couple, are forced to barricade themselves in their apartment despite the palpable tension between them. Now forced into isolation in their small living space, they struggle with their own frailty in a world that can only offer the worst horrors imaginable.
Dys- is a psychological horror film which is a direct response to the current oversaturation of the horror genre by zombies; the story focuses on what happens when people do decide to stay inside and avoid contact with the outside threat. The film stars Shannon Lark, Alex Goldrich, Dega Lazare and includes a special cameo by Lynn Lowry.
Maude Michaud has been directing short films since the age of 16 and her filmography counts more than a dozen short films which have toured the international film festival circuit and gathered critical acclaim. She is excited to be premiering her debut feature film at Fantasia, a festival which has played a crucial role in shaping her love of the genre.
