This crisp, unexpected drama from regular Laurent Cantet collaborator (and Les Revenants creator) Robin Campillo oscillates between thriller, social realism, and gay love story without ever missing a beat. It begins with a classic mis-step. Bourgeois businessman Daniel foolishly picks up an Eastern European hustler at the Gare du Nord, and invites him back to his apartment the next day. But when he buzzes in his new acquaintance, he’s in for an unpleasant surprise…

"Fascinating... Sleek, shape-shifting... by turns a frightening home-invasion drama, a tender love story and a tense hide-and-seek thriller." — Guy Lodge, Variety

"A surprisingly resonant thrill ride." — Bob Mondello, NPR

"Explores interlocking themes of sexuality, immigration and power dynamics with a cleareyed sensitivity and refuses to demonize even its shadiest characters." — Stephen Holden, New York Times

Two years to the day since the collapse of the garment factory in Rana Plaza, Bangladesh, that claimed the lives of 1129 workers, Eco Fashion Week, Fashion Revolution Day and VIFF Vancity Theatre present this inspiring documentary about individuals and organizations forging change. ‘Traceability’ is the aim to have a proper trail for every single step in the supply chain. As well as where, it wants consumers to be concerned with how garments are made. Sharpe’s film follows young designer Laura Seigel as she seeks to connect her work with the people and the places who manufacture them, putting an altogether brighter spin on "globalization".
