About Olivier Bosson's The Call:

In September of 2017, the Varley Art Gallery and Elegoa Cultural Productions welcomed French film director Olivier Bosson to prepare the direction of his latest cinematic piece entitled The Call. The cast of this film will be entirely made up of Markham's diverse community members with or without acting experience.

A first session of castings was held in various locations in Markham in 2017. A second series of casting sessions, as well as rehearsals and filming will take place in the Spring of 2018.

The film is based on the short story, One, by Daniel Foucard. Foucard’s story is itself inspired by two artworks by Claude Lévêque and Reena Spaulings from the FRAC Aquitaine permanent collection (France). The story details the lives of five suburban families who band together to create a micro-nation in search of more prosperity. The story delves into themes of political reasoning, suburban living and public vs. private space and, in a surprising turn, psychiatric rehabilitation.
