23rd Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
This key direct cinema film originated without a script and without the usual permits. Originally it was intended to be a short four-minute report about a traditional sport, but it was rejected. The goal was to lead viewers away from traditional reportage documentaries. The film showed how to exempt documentary from the rules.
Michel Brault (1928-2013) began filming for the ONF and later gained renown as a cameraman and pioneer of shooting with a handheld camera while walking. In his work, Gilles Groulx (1931-1994) explores the relationship between American and Québec culture.
