Synopsis

A poetic and animated meditation based on the impressions experienced by Pierre Hébert during his two trips in Japan, in 2003 and in 2018. Images and sounds, but also captures of his performances, most notably one with the dancer-choreographer Teita Iwabushi. In a certain way, the film tries to answer a fictional question : what is to be seen of Japan when Mount Fuji is invisible, lost in the clouds? Evocation of a paradoxal invisibility.

Director of more than 40 films, including three features, Pierre Hébert worked at the National Film Board of Canada from 1965 to 1999. Since then, his filmmaking work has taken a multidisciplinary scope (live animation performances with musicians, video installations, collaboration with choreographers, drawing, and actions on the web). He also wrote several books and articles about cinéma. He recently resumed doing direct scratch animation for which he was well known in the 80’s and the 90’s. He received, in 2005, the Quebec «Albert Tessier» Cinema award for his complete works, in 2012, a carreer grant of Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec and, in 2018, an Honorary Doctorate by the Emily Carr University of Art and Design, in Vancouver.
