‘Renard Rouge’

written & directed

by Leonard Rääf

In the summer of 98′, a young girl named Julie Renard follows her brothers into the woods on the Swedish countryside. After losing them, she stumbles upon a stranger with a gun. Luckily the stranger is the vivid Elsa, roughly her age with a BB-gun. They spend the next 24 hours together and define the years of their youth, getting to know each other “well enough” to make decisions that will last forever.


NEW YORK – Leonard Rääf’s “Renard Rouge” gives audiences a glimpse into forgotten youth. Viewers can’t help but smile as the two laugh, imagine and snap Polaroids……
