The team behind the short documentary Interwoven Roots will be at the Centre culturel de Paspébiac on Saturday, August 15, from 4 to 6 p.m. for a get-together with the public on the site where that video/photo project is being exhibited.
Drama teacher Mélissa Lefebvre, who had the original idea for the project, director, cameraman and editor Paul Tom and photographer Joannie Lafrenière (Montreal, Québec) will be doing a presentation of the work, the result of a photographic and intergenerational meetup of colorful seniors and teenagers recently arrived in Montreal.
Interwoven Roots is a portrayal of a happy complicity between two generations, two very distinct life contexts, two worlds that complete each other here with tenderness, humor and fantasy through various staged photographs. The project gathers the traces that dot an individual’s memory and that are transformed, in the course of these get-togethers, into a collective poetry.
