Film Website



In 1968, an internationally renowned film director lands in the Abitibi region in North-West Québec. On local TV, he announces the democratization of imagery – through video. Two locals, Michel and his girlfriend Marie, are inspired and begin experimenting with the new medium, recording the dreams of the inhabitants of their region on video. But their film research throws up existential questions for the couple. Marie above all is no longer sure whether she should stay or go. The film is a wonderfully photographed homage to the time when making films was still revolutionary. Screening on 30.09. and 05.10. in attendance of: Éric Morin (Director), Olivier Picard (Producer)


Éric Morin has directed numerous music videos and the documentary Mutantès: Dans la tête de Pierre Lapointe (2010). Hunting the Northern Godard is his feature film debut.
