O Louisiana!

Top of page

In early December 2001, a Montreal filmmaker heads to Louisiana to screen her adaptation of a novel by Marie-Claire Blais. The woman's journey is particularly meaningful because one of her ancestors immigrated to Louisiana to flee the Rebellion of 1837.

During this road trip captured on film, the woman takes stock of her life and embraces her background and her experiences in cinema. She also reflects on how images and the written word interact and how characters come to life.

The film evolves before our eyes into a fascinating essay on the creation of works of art.
