‘Familiar Ground’ by Quebec filmmaker Stephane Lafleur wins prize at L.A. fest

LOS ANGELES, Calif. – A Canadian film about adult siblings visited by a man who claims to be from the future has won a prize at the Los Angeles Film Festival.

“Familiar Ground” by Quebec’s Stephane Lafleur won the award for best narrative feature at the festival, which wrapped Sunday.

The jury praised the French-language deadpan comedy for containing unique images “that won’t soon be forgotten.”

“In a strong narrative competition this year, this was the singular vision that stood out the most,” they wrote.

“Familiar Ground” (“En terrains connus”) stars Fanny Mallette as Maryse, an unhappy wife, and Francis La Haye as Benoit, her slacker brother.

The two reconnect after a man who claims to have travelled back in time warns Maryse of an accident.

In February, the film won a jury prize at the Berlin film festival.
