Jack Kerouac's Road - A Franco-American Odyssey

Top of page

Part documentary, part drama, this film presents the life and work of Jack Kerouac, an American writer with Québec roots who became one of the most important spokesmen for his generation. Intercut with archival footage, photographs, interviews and a careful reconstruction of the period, this film takes apart the heroic myth and even returns to the childhood of the author whose life and work contributed greatly to the cultural, sexual and social revolution of the 1960s.

1989, 54 min 39 s
