RIDM Special 20th

Junior Isabelle Lavigne, Stéphane Thibault

Film index A to Z

Isabelle Lavigne and Stéphane Thibault spent a year following the ups-and-downs of the Baie-Comeau Drakkars, a major junior hockey team. Going right to the heart of the subject in a sensitive yet realistic manner, refusing the easy route of showing images of players sparring, they patiently take stock of what goes on behind the scenes, helping us get to know the players, managers and shareholders. The film makes us feel the intense, constant stress experienced by these young men.

Presented in collaboration with the NFB, Canal D and the Cinéma sous les étoiles de Funambules Médias
