Q&A with Denis Côté and screening
Festival in Media
2017-12-07

On December 6th was a meeting with director Denis Côté after screening of his film "Skin So Soft".

A Skin So Soft crafts a multifaceted portrait of six latter-day Adonises through the lens of their everyday lives: extreme diets, training regimens, family relationships, and friendships within the community. Capturing the physical brawn and emotional complexity of its subjects with wit and tenderness, this companion piece to Cote's singular animal study Bestiaire (2012) is a self-reflexive rumination on the long tradition of filming the human body that also advances a fascinating perspective on contemporary masculinity.

 

Denis Côté was born in 1973 in Perth-Andover, Canada. Studied film at Collège Ahuntsic in Montreal. 1994 founds nihil productions. Directed numerous short films, worked as radio film critic and from 1999-2005 as journalist for ICI magazine. His films have screened and received awards at prestigious festivals including Locarno, Berlin and Cannes.
