Films: October 2013 Archives
Saturday October 26, 2013
In 1968, Jean-Luc Godard, the famous French New-Wave film director, visited Rouyn-Noranda. That little-known detail has inspired a new movie, Chasse au Godard d'Abbittibbi - or, Hunting the Northern Godard.
That film opens the international film festival in Abitibi-Témiscamingue tonight in Rouyn-Noranda. It was written and directed by a hometown boy - TV and documentary director, Éric Morin. This is his first feature film.
In the Morin's version of Godard's visit, Godard changes the lives of two restless people - a young girl who sells tickets at the local cinema, and her boyfriend.
He joins Sonali Karnick in-studio to tell us more about the project.

They've chosen one town per province, and in Quebec, their pick was Stanbridge East in Brome-Missisquoi.
As you may know, Stanbridge East is a beautiful little town of fewer than 900 people, both English and French, on the Route des vins.
Ryder White and Alexandra Caulfield have been "in-residence" for more than a week now. Ryder is here this morning, with Pam Dillon, one of the residents of Stanbridge East who is making her own film.
