The short film Trotteur tells the story of a legendary figure in Quebec - a man known as Alexis le trotteur. They say he could outrun a horse and a train. And frequently did.
Trotteur was an official selection at TIFF earlier this year, and at Cannes. Critics praised it for its "breathtaking art direction and cinematography." Now it's opening the Abitibi International film festival in Rouyn-Noranda tonight.
Arnaud Brisebois is the screenwriter and one of two directors, along with Francis Leclerc.
