Why is genre cinema not very prominent in Quebec’s film world? That’s the question at the heart of this film co-directed by Amir Belkaim and Félix Brassard, a must-see for anyone who loves fantasy, horror or science fiction movies. Featuring filmmakers (David Cronenberg, Robin Aubert, Izabel Grondin), producers (Nicole Robert, Rock Demers) and experts (Marcel Jean, Bernard Perron) with a passion for the question, L’inquiétante absence turns the camera on the obscure history of a woefully underappreciated cinematic form, while communities of loyal fans keep on celebrating and worshipping it at many festivals.
