Aznavour by Charles
In 1948, ‪Edith Piaf‬ offered a Paillard-Bolex camera to ‪Charles Aznavour‬, the first he was to own and which would always be with him. Until 1982, Charles would shot hours and hours of material which would become the corpus of his film diary. Aznavour filmed his life and lived like he filmed. Everywhere he went, his camera was with him. It recorded everything. Moments of life, the places he passed through, his friends, loves, hassles. A few months before he died, he started working through the rushes of his films with Marc di Domenico. He then decided to make a film out of them, his film.

Le Nadine, on a accusé les morts
Thirty years ago, on the night of December 16, 1990, the NADINE, a trawler owned by Ma-delipêche, undertook its 15th fishing trip with Captain Robert Poirier, 8 sailors fishermen and Estelle Laberge, a Gaspé biologist on duty. Only the captain and his brother Serge came back alive. Why?

Even today, we wonder about the causes of the shipwreck. In addition to inadequate safety measures and the lack of crew training, federal investigators and coroner Jacques Bérubé have identified serious deficiencies in the vessel, not the least of which is an engine that runs wild when moving backwards. None of the fishermen were able to put on their one-size-fits-all survival gear in the required time. Except for the captain who was criticized for it. The others died of hypothermia, two of them in the arms of the captain who held them for 9 hours while drifting for 20 kilometres. It was Captain Adrien Duguay who diverted his boat from Newfoundland to the rescue. At the Islands, all the captains of Madelipêche, dockside, were waiting for permission to go and answer the distress signal of their brothers. The Coast Guard of the Islands, ill-equipped for emergency measures at sea, collected in the early morning hours Serge Poirier, entangled in his suit, whom a saving wave had thrown into the near-submerged life raft.

« The dead have been accused », says the captain who suffers from survivor syndrome. It was suggested that the crew did not do their job properly, concealing the irregularities that had been repeatedly reported to the shipowners. Hilaire Poirier, 5 years chief engineer aboard the NADINE, attests that fact. Guy Bourgeois, usually on the crew, confirmed the risks incurred several times at sea. « Sailors at heart », he said. They all knew they were in danger. But it was their job and they loved it.

The omerta that prevailed on the Islands at that time did not allow to reveal more. Time has done its work; tongues have loosened and put words on the suffering of the survivors. « They didn’t care about our men … as if they weren’t good fishermen, as if my husband had died for nothing, kind of crushed, soiled… », said Huguette Bourgeois, the widow of one of them. The event caused immeasurable damages to the close-knit community of Magdalen Islanders: depression, burnout, even suicide and desertion of the Islands to escape the opprobrium.

THE NADINE… THE DEAD HAVE BEEN ACCUSED tells a true story of the Magdalen Islands, far from the postcard vision that we all have. Known for his audacity and sensitivity, director Richard Lavoie wants to do justice, restore the reputation of these fishermen in the eyes of their families and their community. Seeking for truth, he undertook more than 25 years ago the collection of data that enabled him to commit himself once again.

Joséphine Bacon: Je m\'appelle humain
”Sauvage“, says Joséphine Bacon, ”means to be wholly free.“ When elders leave us, a link to the past vanishes along with them. Innu writer Joséphine Bacon exemplifies a generation that is bearing witness to a time that will soon have passed away. With charm and diplomacy, she leads a charge against the loss of a language, a culture, and its traditions. On the trail of Papakassik, the master of the caribou, Call Me Human proposes a foray into a people's multimillennial history, in company with a woman of great spirit who has devoted her life to passing on her knowledge and that of her ancestors. In her language, Innu means ”human.“
