An eclectic portrait of a true scumbag, Jimmywork tells the story of Jimmy, who at the dawn of his 50th birthday finds himself at a crossroads in his life. Professional drunkard and schemer at times, for him it’s now or never, he wants to get out of this mediocre existence. Posing as a major American producer, he develops an advertising campaign to promote a rodeo in northern Quebec. The story develops initially in the Mile End district of Montreal, then transports us to the heart of the Far East of Quebec in a frenetic road movie.

 

This film was chosen by Patrice Laliberté, director of TRÈS BELLE JOURNÉE, as part of our series Cinéastes cœur à cœur. The screening will be followed by a discussion between the two filmmakers.
