Dying makes all the difference in the world.

With her debut feature film HUMANE, acclaimed photographer Caitlin Cronenberg transitioned into the role of filmmaker, and joins the ranks of one of the most prolific Canadian “family businesses” alongside her iconic father David, and brother Brandon (POSSESSOR, INFINITY POOL).

HUMANE takes place over a single day, mere months after a global ecological collapse has forced world leaders to take extreme measures to reduce the earth’s population. In a wealthy enclave, a recently retired newsman has invited his four grown children to dinner to announce his intentions to enlist in the nation’s new euthanasia program. But when the father’s plan goes horribly awry, tensions flare and chaos erupt among his children. With Jay Baruchel, Emily Hampshire, Peter Gallagher, Enrico Colantoni, Sebastian Chacon.
