"Richard Desjardins and Robert Monderie spotlight an often ignored people whom they lived beside but knew little about. Their turbulent history, brought to the screen for the first time, dates back over 5,000 years. But the next century may well be their last. For too long, they have lived in abject conditions, sometimes worse than in Third World countries. Yet the two filmmakers didn't have to travel thousands of kilometres to find these people. The Algonquin nation lives right here in Quebec."--Publisher's website

Aliénor : chanson de geste by Richard Desjardins( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in French and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Monologue dramatique qui prend la forme d'une chanson de geste irrévérencieuse, ##Aliénor## se présente comme une suite de quatrains rédigés en alexandrins rimés. Un paysan révolté, Gauthier sans Avoir, se tient au chevet d'Aliénor d'Aquitaine mourante, le 31 mars 1204, en l'abbaye de Fontevraud. Il raconte tout à la fois l'injustice qui lui a été faite par la reine et ses seigneurs, qu'il n'a cessé de vouloir venger, et le destin de cette puissante suzeraine, épouse de Louis VII de France puis de Henri II d'Angleterre. Écrit dans une langue savoureuse et rude, un livre hors mode qui mérite le détour. Illustration de qualité. [SDM]

Le spectacle présente les pièces musicales suivantes: Signe distinctif -- Première position -- Le saumon -- Dans ses yeux -- Va-t'en pas -- Notre-Dame des Scories -- La porte du ciel -- Tu m'aimes-tu -- --et j'ai couché dans mon char -- --j'ai dormi dans ma bagnole -- Buck -- Eh oui, c'est ça la vie -- Le gala -- Le bon gars -- Le bon gars -- Les Yankees -- Nataq -- Jenny -- Nous aurons. L'entrevue offre un regard sur plusieurs facettes de la carrière du chanteur. Le documentaire, "L'erreur boréale", est un essai critique sur la foresterie boréale au Québec. Alors que le discours officiel nous assure, logiciel à l'appui, que le patrimoine forestier demeure et demeurera intact, alors que le silence et l'ignorance règnent sur notre univers forestier, les auteurs se demandent, intuitions à l'appui, si un schéma de liquidation de la ressource ne serait pas en cours de réalisation. Contient, entre autres, des commentaires de l'équipe, des commentaires des réalisateurs du documentaire, des entrevues avec les musiciens, des scènes additionnelles et des scènes des coulisses du concert.
