The Vidéographes – The Duty of Remembrance

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of Vidéographe, artist and filmmaker Luc Bourdon has drawn on the 2,300 works in the collective’s catalogue to develop this program. Entitled The Duty of Remembrance, it is made up of five titles that explore tragic and controversial events in recent history and their traces in our memories and on the land. True to the activist roots of independent cinema, the artists aim to deepen our understanding of the world and offer a personal, poetic, and powerful alternative to standardized mass-media narratives.

Screening followed by a discussion with Pierre Hébert, Félix Lamarche, Eduardo Menz, and Nayla Dabaji, moderated by Luc Bourdon.
