UN SIGNE A Sign

  • SYNOPSIS: An unnamed young woman walks in the streets of Montréal, all set up for Christmas. This day is special to her as it is the anniversary of the publication of her favorite book. So it is nothing but a sign for her when she happens to cross the path of an attractive young man. She finds a way to talk to him, and as she gets to know him, she confirms her first impression. Finding the most absurd connections between the young man and herself, she establishes that all the signs point toward a definitive conclusion: he is the man of her life.
Siham Besnier- The Young Woman
  • Un Signe is a bitter-sweet rom-com whose progress is paradoxically familiar and surprising. Everyone can identify with the young woman and has known a similar story, yet no one knows how this romance will end.

THE DIRECTOR: Mahée Merica is a Young French Screenwriter and Director. She grew up in France where she used to be a member of the French National Fencing Team U-17 before moving to Montréal, Canada for her studies at McGill University in Fall 2013. There, she obtained a degree in Arts, (Major: Cultural Studies, Minors: Political Sciences and Sociology). Mahée has always been writing stories, but she only started to write scenarios and shoot movies during her second year university in 2015. From then on, she never stopped writing and shooting short films with the limited means she had at her disposal. Passionated about movies, she often writes, directs and edits her shorts and shoots them for almost not money with some friends of hers. UN SIGNE is her 3rd short film and has been selected and awarded to multiple festivals. A few months after shooting it, Mahée has been selected to direct a short film in less than a week during the 2017 Cannes Film Festival. The final result, Memory has been screened at Cannes and won the Creative Minds Award for Best Screenplay and the Creative Minds Award for Best Editing. Mahée is very adventurous, curious and creative and never hesitates to take the challenges the cinematic industry offers her. She is currently working as a first Assistant Director on a feature film produced in Montréal and in the process of writing her first feature film. She is aspiring to join a film school in 2018 to pursue her dream of becoming an indie filmmaker.
