Written by: Hélène Choquette, Sophie Mangado
Documentary filmmaker Hélène Choquette has won multiple awards at home and internationally. She casts an unflinching yet empathetic gaze on people whose voices would otherwise remain silent: THE REFUGEES OF THE BLUE PLANET, CHILDREN OF CHERNOBYL, AVENUE ZERO, FISTS OF PRIDE and UNITÉ 9: LE DOCUMENTAIRE.
Lepage au Soleil
LEPAGE AU SOLEIL is an invitation to join director Robert Lepage as he embarks on a creative journey with the actors of legendary theatre company Le Théâtre du Soleil de Paris, whose productions are highly respected and internationally acclaimed. For the first time, these two titans of the stage will unite to create Kanata, an original work of theatre devoted to the history of Canada’s First Nations people. As the months pass, the actors (who come from eleven different countries, none with aboriginal origins), will discover that First Nations’ history is not so far from their own. The documentary shows how Robert Lepage, inspired by the cosmopolitan nature of the group and the current sociopolitical atmosphere, was able to weave universal themes into his creation.
