MORNING EXCHANGE WITH JOCELYNE SAUCIER
PRECEDED BY THE PRESENTATION OF IL PLEUVAIT DES OISEAUX
With his novel Il pleuvait des oiseaux, published in 2011, the author of Rouyn-Noranda Jocelyne Saucier has become an ambassador for Abitibi-Témiscamingue on the international scene. Her work captivated the public as soon as it was released and won numerous awards. Translated into 15 languages, it has been warmly welcomed by readers and critics alike. Her adaptation for the screen, directed by Louise Archambault, was launched at the Toronto International Film Festival last September and seems also poised for a great run.
The Festival offers festivalgoers the chance to see or review the work of Louise Archambault and then discuss with Jocelyne Saucier. Hosted by Jolyne Lalonde, this meeting will allow the public to discover the author's vision of the big screen adaptation of her successful novel, but also on this great adventure that Il pleuvait des oiseaux has been since its publication.
IL PLEUVAIT DES OISEAUX
Three old hermits live reclused in the woods. As forest fires threaten the region, their daily lives will be turned upside down by the death of their elder, Boychuck, and the arrival of an octogenarian who has been unfairly locked up all his life. A photographer appointed to interview the witnesses of the deadliest fires of the time finds their lair. The two women will make the astonishing discovery of hundreds of Boychuck paintings that tell his tragic past during these fires. Il pleuvait des oiseaux is a story of intertwined destinies where love has no age, where life takes root again in unexpected fertile grounds.
