(Peau de pêche)
Justine Prince


June 2010. 11 years old Julia and Raphaëlle are the best at killing time together. Between walking their blind neighbor’s dogs and finishing their music video before Raph returns to Romania, they unconsciously grow apart. This nostalgic semi-autobiographical story recounts the last moments of the inevitable and awkward summer between childhood and adolescence.

Justine Prince

‍Justine Prince is a filmmaker from Quebec City whose work mainly explores the representation of genres, nostalgia and childhood. Her approach boils down to deconstructing the codes of femininity in cinema through a language that oscillates between realism and dreaminess. She graduated with a bachelor's degree in cinema from UQAM in 2021, leaving the graduation night with the Grand Prize for her film Charming. A versatile artist, she then directed video clips for artists such as Maryline Léonard, Fredz and Brigitte Boisjoli, and is now working for La Distributrice de Films as a distributor. Justine has just finished her first independent short film, Peaches, funded by the Canada Council for the Arts, and is starting pre-production on her next short film, Lost And Found.
