Synopsis

This film is available online HERE

With a sweeping vision and a keen eye for detail, artist René Derouin takes an all-encompassing view of the world around him, from Quebec to Mexico. His work is suffused with a love of nature and seeks to bridge the divide between contemporary art and the public. Derouin is given centre stage in this sensitive account by Julie Corbeil. Premiering in Montreal, this documentary is a moving portrayal of a tireless and committed artist whose passion for creation and dialogue have made him a pillar of Quebec visual arts.
