Event Details

A beautiful animated film about invented islands. About an imaginary, linguistic, political territory. About a real or dreamed country, or something in between. The archipel consists of alluring, seductive drawings, documentary images and speeches that tell and dream about a place and its inhabitants, all to reflect on what makes a piece of land a region, a community. Does this only occur when we put it into words? tells its stories? Does it occur in our work? Or in our memories, songs and plays?

The film is directed by Félix Dufour-Laperrière, and is a poetic documentary about the islands of St. The Lawrence River in Canada, which forms a metaphor for Quebec’s status as an “uncertain country” marked by tensions between its status as a province of Canada and the Québécois people’s conception of themselves as a distinct nation.
