UNDERGROUND

SOPHIE DUPUIS’ GRIPPING TALE OF REDEMPTION

GETS UK RELEASE IN AUGUST

 

“A nuanced portrayal of real, human characters; both dramatic and poignant, Souterrain is one of the best Canadian films of the year.” Whistler Film Festival


“A thoughtful exploration of the emotional lives of men working in a Quebec mine. What’s most emotionally resonant in Souterrain is the way that the men react to losing their colleagues.” Seventh Row

 

Sovereign is proud to announce the UK release of Canadian drama UNDERGROUND (Souterrain) on20th August, in cinemas and on Virtual Cinemas and VOD.

Maxime works in a mine in Val d’Or. He shares his time with his girlfriend and his childhood friend, Julien, who was disabled after a car accident he caused two years earlier. Feeling guilty, Maxime wants to redeem himself. But he is held back by Mario, Julien’s father who also works at the mine and who still holds it against him. One day, an explosion resounds underground. As part of the rescue mission, Maxime descends into the cave of the mine with the firm intention to save his colleagues.


Joakim Robillard (King Dave) is outstanding as the conflicted Maxime, with excellent support from Théodore Pellerin (Genèse), in a thought-provoking and deftly-handled examination of masculinity in crisis.


UNDERGROUND had its world premiere screening at the 2020 Whistler Film Festival, where Dupuis won the Borsos Competition award for Best Director of a Canadian Film; and opened the Rendez-vous Québec Cinéma Film Festival in April 2021.


UNDERGROUND writer/director Sophie Dupuis’ debut Family First was Canada’s submission for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 91st Academy Awards. It was nominated for eight Prix Iris at the 20th Quebec Cinema Awards.
