The Quebec premiere of the feature movie Tree Line starring Kristin Wallace, Babak Motamed, Rose Ryan and John Elliott will be shown at the Cinema Cartier on June 25 at 7pm.

The movie was produced by Cinegraphe Productions of Quebec City. The film premiered at the Toronto Independent Film Festival 2013 (TIFF 2013) and had the audience in tears. The film is scheduled to open in Landmark Cinemas in Alberta in August 2014.

Tree Line is the remarkable new feature film by Quebec’s award-winning feature director Nicholas Kinsey (Women Without Wings, Killing Ruth – The Snuff Dialogues, Leatha Acidents).

Fire-spotter Meg Wilson has disappeared into the wilderness. Her estranged daughter Susan puts aside their unhappy past in a dangerous attempt to find her.

Fire-lookouts are part of our Western culture. Jack Kerouac wrote about his job as a fire-spotter on Desolation Peak in the North Cascade mountains of Washington State in the summer of 1956. There is something very special about these hardy souls who live out in the woods for months at a time with nothing to do but watch for smoke plumes.

Our film was inspired by the story of the disappearance of Stephanie Stewart, a 70-year-old mother who spent thirteen years on a fire lookout in Hinton, Alberta before she disappeared without a trace in August 2006. Her body has never been found.

Tree Line was clearly a hit with women at the TIFF screening – of particular note is the mother-estranged daughter relationship.

“A strong story line, superb acting talent and direction, amazing forest views, and an extraordinary music track by Ralf Cassidy Bindels, this is a remarkable new feature film.”

Tree Line is the quintessential Canadian film with its lost fire-spotter and majestic forests.”

Tree Line is a sensitive and eerie replay of a true life incident involving the disappearance of a fire spotter. It is a memorable portrayal not only of human beings caught in extreme emotions but of a social sector living in the margins.”
