Event Description

Intelligently pairing the shifting reality of agriculture in Europe with the contemporary conversation on workplace abuses, Beasts tells the story of Constance, a young woman who hopes to save her family’s farm from bankruptcy.

With the help of her fiancé, she puts together a business plan to take over the operation, trusting Sylvain, an influential member of the local farm board to help them get it approved. However, Sylvain’s desire for Constance quickly becomes apparent and he soon takes advantage of her in a desperate situation.

Beasts never gives into melodrama and shrewdly recognizes that sexual assault is often perpetrated as a desire for power and control. On a parallel track with the political struggle that’s taking place within the farmer’s union, this insight unearths darker truths about why and how that influence is so often misused, whether on an industrial scale, or one-on-one, alone with someone in a room.

Diane Rouxel’s grounded lead performance is expertly calibrated to the anxieties of every scene, quietly capturing the way that guilt can worm its way into the psychology of a sexual assault survivor. As the threat of losing their farm only grows, Constance realizes she must move her own pawns in place to assert herself within the community and win back the power and confidence that was stolen from her.
