Dialogue between the arts

Canards Errants Bruno Chouinard

As part of an experiment on climate change, NASA dropped 90 yellow rubber ducks into holes in Greenland’s glaciers. More than a decade later, scientists are still trying to locate the ducks, which they hoped to find scattered across the globe. Stray Ducks is the surreal and epic tale of these cute yellow toys and their mysterious disappearance. Anonymous, bobbing across the oceans, they observe human behaviour the world over. With a keen sense of irony and absurdist humour, this film takes an artistic as well as a critical perspective on social injustice and the climate crisis. (Programming Collective)

Presented in collaboration with the Observatoire du cinéma au Québec (OCQ), Département d'Histoire de l'art et d'études cinématographiques (UDEM and Université de Montréal)
