François Péloquin takes on the challenges of Canadian family life in his latest work, “The Sound of the Trees.” 

The drama stars Roy Dupuis and Antonie L’Écuyer as a family in the Quebec countryside. Seventeen-year-old Jérémie wants to be a normal teenager — drive around in his car, listen to hip hop and hang out with his friends. His father Régis, the owner of a sawmill, is upset by his son’s attitude and wants him to shift his focus to becoming a lumberjack. When Jérémie’s older brother leaves the two of them alone together, their relationship becomes even more strained.

The film will have its world premiere at the 2015 Karlovy Vary International Film Festival on July 6. Check out the trailer above.
