Claude Gagnon, A singular view

A filmmaker who is utterly unique in Quebec’s cinematic history. Starting in the 1970s, he expressed his singular perspective by travelling to Japan to direct Keiko, the story of an arranged marriage in parallel with a gay love story. He has built a coherent filmography, bringing fully realized directorial skills to explorations of marginal and complex situations, exposing social issues seldom seen in our films, including Indigenous issues (Visage pale, 1985) and the lives of people with disabilities (Kenny, 1987). Discover the work of a filmmaker who is still working, and in tune with our time.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the director

Jacques Larose, an attaché for the Canadian embassy, returns home because he has just inherited an old house in horrible condition and a large sum of money. He finds his old friend Pierrot, but he had not expected that the latter would bring Luce, his girlfriend.
