Hunting the Northern Godard in Abitibi

Photo from Chasse au Godard.jpgIn 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-T√©miscamingue tonight in Rouyn-Noranda. It was written and directed by a hometown boy - TV and documentary director, √Čric 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.
