Synopsis

World Premiere - In attendance of the Director Bruno Boulianne and the Artist Jean-Pierre Larocque, March 22.

After spending 15 years in artistic and academic explorations at different American schools and universities, painter and ceramicist Jean-Pierre Larocque returned to Montreal at the turn of the 2000s. In this portrait film, Larocque opens his studio to viewers. Using charcoal “reluctantly” and grinding away slate like so many layers of skin, he is a creator of unfathomable sensitivity who shapes intriguing, enchanting works that play on time and eras while reminding us of our own human ghosts.

This film will also be presented in Quebec City on March 23rd.
