original title: Dinosauria, We
country: Canada
year: 2023
running time: 5 min.


An edited visual accompaniment to an original recitation of Charles Bukowski's poem Dinosaurs, We from his late collection The Last Night of the Earth (1991), composed of dozens of documentary, news and fiction shots, along with Carl Bastien's unsettling music, underscores the timeliness of the poet's apocalyptic vision.

“We are born into this sorrowful deadliness.”


Quebec director, screenwriter and editor Maxime-Claude L'Écuyer studied film and art history at the Université de Montréal. He has written and directed several short fiction films, and in 2022 he made his first feature-length documentary, 305 Bellechasse, about the artists who inhabited an abandoned pasta factory in Montréal.
