Perdre Mario

Quebec (Canada)

On May 22, 2015, Mario shot a bullet in his head. Committing one of 1200 suicides in Quebec that year, he left his family and friends with many questions and deep sadness, the very same one that assails anyone brutally left grieving by a volontary and irremediable departure. Mario was the best and longest friend of the filmmaker of this film. In this documentary, the latter describes and dissects what preceded Mario’s ultimate move, as well as demonstrates the dismay of his close group of friends. By extension, this is the narrative of a troubling experience that everyone of us has unfortunately been through or will go through.
