by Guylaine Marois et Éric Ruel
Shows the beginnings of the recording industry in Quebec. We retrace the career of Denis Pantis, record producer in the 1960s, a stranger whose songs Quebec knows by heart. Around him, a new generation of stars, producers, musicians and lyricists will emerge, who together will set up a recording industry "independent" like no other in the world.
An innovation for the 2021 edition: from stars to the web!
In cancellation case due to bad weather or the pandemic, we will send an email to the participants to inform them of the situation. In this message, the participants will find a link to watch a film in French (subtitled in English) and enjoy the experience at home. In other words, Thursday is cinema! We guarantee a movie night every Thursday!
This project was made possible by the Government of Canada.
and the French Institute.
