Bête Noire (Dark Soul) is a Quebecois drama set in the immediate aftermath of a school shooting; it focuses on the impact of a school shooting on the perpetrator’s family. What also makes the series notable is the fact it starts in the minutes after the fictional shooting, with viewers never explicitly seeing the events that are at the centre of the story. Bête Noire (Dark Soul) has been written by Patrick Lowe and Annabelle Poisson and directed by the award-winning writer and director behind films such as Antigone, which was Canada’s entry for best international feature at the 2020 Oscars, Sophie Deraspe.
