Spotlight on Quebec cinema

presented by Hydro-Québec

Official selection – The International Festival of Films on Art (FIFA) – 2021

In a magnificent, strangely empty theater, Edgar Bori embodies the quest of an author-in-residence working on the final draft of his next creation. Poetic lyrics, timeless melodies, the actor sings and speaks words that merge with those of Quebec poet and playwright Michel Garneau, whose powerful voice charged with meaning can be heard from time to time. We are carried away in the bewitching and luxuriant universe of a dramatic musical where imagination takes over through the dialogues of a lonely man. Alone, but not quite, for around him appear and disappear Jean-François Groulx, his accomplice musician, and Josianne Paradis, his idealized muse. This feature film stages the story of a romantic author’s last flight, as he risks himself into recapturing an unforgettable flame of his youth.
Directed by Jean-Pierre Gariépy, this is a film adaptation of the play “Garneau/Bori” created in 2017 by Edgar Bori and directed by Michel Bruzat (Théâtre de la Passerelle, France).
