Voyageur, 1608 (Presented with Alliance Française du Maine)

From the glacial winds of Louisbourg, Nova Scotia, all the way to the Gulf of Mexico, from Terre Neuve to Louisiana, Voyageur finds his Franco American roots and travels in time. A docu-fiction filmed as an historical documentary, mixing past and present in a new narrative form, this 10,000 mile road movie searches for a path in the past on the traces of the Nouvelle France in Northern America. The character, a historian journalist dressed as a voyageur from the 17th century, becomes a “coureur des bois”, and retraces the steps of a 200 year odyssey during his journey; he tells us the most extraordinary untold story about the French Presence in Northern America by walking the land.
