Q&A with Julian Ballester
Night after night, Kye, Tobie, Paul, Kim and Tattoo wander through the streets and alleys of Montreal. They support each other, and they are all drug users. It is their only way of escaping a harsh reality, but at the same time it is what keeps them on the streets. Kye, the youngest of the five, sometimes dreams of a different life.
Julian Ballester graduated from the Université Aix-Marseille with a Master's degree in documentary film studies. His graduation film "Rue Curiol" tells the story or three transexual prostitutes in Marseilles, at a moment when the street where they work and live is under reconstruction. He then moved to Canada, where he kept exploring the life in the streets. "Midnight Ramblers" is his debut film, and was made with a group of five drug addicts living at night in the streets of downtown Montreal.
