Violent (2014)

“A sincere expression of a generous curiosity about some of life’s bigger questions, and an attempt to find, in the act of leave-taking, some wisdom and a kind of grace.” —IndieWire

“Huculiak is hurling a brick for Canadian newcomers with his Norwegian-language drama about impulsive teen angst that is filled with creative risk.” —The Hollywood Reporter

Directed by Andrew Huculiak. Written, directed, shot and scored in its entirety by one of Canada’s youngest groups of adept creatives — all of whom are still in their twenties — the Canadian film VIOLENT is the astonishing debut feature from Amazing Factory Productions.

Driven by the stunning visuals of the Norwegian landscape and a powerful original score, VIOLENT centres on a young woman, Dagny, and her last memories of the five people who loved her most, vividly recalled during a catastrophic event. The film opens with this event, which ultimately causes her death. The story then weaves gracefully through separate character-based chapters, providing glimpses into the lifelong friendship with a young sister, the increasingly ominous interactions with a seemingly benevolent family friend, and the moving wisdom of a beloved grandfather. Dagny’s memories are intertwined with raw and beautiful interpretations of how she is experiencing death.
