Forever Quebec - DVD/Infiniment Québec - DVD
Jean-Claude Labrecque brings the perspective of a mature director and the memories of a child to this work about Quebec City which in 2008 is celebrating the 400th anniversary of its founding by Samuel de Champlain. The filmmaker makes striking use of water colours, maps, engravings, paintings and photographs to bring to life the past and present of his home town. Whether swept by winter winds or sweltering in the summer sunshine, Quebec City appears intensely alive, despite past war and conquest. It's still characterized by its Cap-aux-Diamants, its slopes and staircases, its freezing winters and its religious heritage. An affectionate and poetic tribute to Quebec, the beacon of French Canada and French North America.
