Film details


WILCOX is of those whom exist outside the norm. Traversing deserted roads and nameless fields, Wilcox sets off to create his own mythology. Deserter, delinquent, or survivalist, the adventurer quietly roams in search of something; in search of a touchstone of some kind; in search of what could more simply be described as freedom.

Denis Côté

Born in New Brunswick in 1973, he began making short films after completing his studies in Cinema. While working as a film critic, Denis Côté finished his first feature-length film in 2005, Les états Nordiques (Drifting States). The film won the Golden Leopard Award at the Locarno International Film Festival in Switzerland, then made the rounds of the festival circuit. Carcasses (2009) was presented at the Directors’Fortnight at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival. Côté is interested in exploring themes of solitude, intimate fears, and alienation through documentary and fiction filmmaking that confronts and questions the language of cinema. His films have been shown at more than twenty retrospectives throughout the world. Wilcox is Denis Côté’s 12th feature-length film, following films such as Curling, Bestiaire, Vic+Flo ont vu un ours (Vic+Flo Saw a Bear), and Répertoire des villes disparues (Ghost Town Anthology).
