RKSS is a Montreal-based Writer-director triforce, composed by Anouk Whissell, François Simard and Yoann-Karl Whissell.

Their critically acclaimed debut feature Turbo Kid, premiered at Sundance in 2015, the starting point of a successful festival tour, winning over 24 awards worldwide including the SXSW’s Audience Midnighters Award, BiFan’s Best Directors, Siteges’s Carnet Jove for Best Feature & Best Original Soundtrack, as well as a Saturn Award for Best International Film.

In January 2018, RKSS returned to Sundance for the World Premiere of their second movie, Summer of ‘84. Praised by its audience and major media outlets such as Hollywood Reporter, The Village Voice and Variety, this new movie confirmed the filmmakers’ maturity and talent. Released in theaters, Blu-ray and on all main digital platforms in August 2018, Summer of ’84 continues to this day, to gain fans worldwide.

2022, was a very busy year for the filmmaker trio, as they directed two feature films. The first one, We are Zombies, to which they also wrote the screenplay, is the adaptation of Jerry Frissen and Guy Davis’ popular comic book, published by Humanoids.

While simultaneously finishing post-production of their third movie, they began production on their fourth feature. The new project written by Alberto Marini and entitled Wake Up, is a co-production between France and Spain and is set up at Studiocanal.

To this day, and through their work, RKSS has successfully touched the hearts of all generations far beyond the genre and cult fans.
