Q&A with film director François Jacob
Festival in Media
2017-12-07

On December 6 was screened "A Moon of Nickel and Ice" and Q&A with film director.

The mining town of Norilsk sits in the heart of the Siberian Arctic, huddled behind its wind walls and bathed in the smoke and sulfur of its factories. While teenagers in the icy city dream of exile and nickel miners ponder the lost Soviet comradeship, descendants of Gulag prisoners and theatre artists seek to shed light on Norilsk's dark past, buried under ice and censorship.

 

François Jacob is a self-trained filmmaker who has mainly directed short fiction. His early work includes The Singing Tomorrows (2014), The Sun (2010), and The End of the Train (2008). Sur la lune de nickel is his first feature documentary project. He currently lives and works in Montreal.
