Girl meets boy. They walk and wander in the industrial part
of the city near the harbour.

with Charlotte Laurier and François Gourd


presentation

Claude Fafard and I were first-year students for the Baccalauréat in Communications at the UQAM. We had seen the short film Strass Café that had really impressed us. Léa Pool filmed the city that we had thought we knew, in a way that we’d never seen it before. We decided to go for a stroll in the industrial quarter (many of these sites have since been destroyed – ironically, to make way for the Cité du Multimédia). We asked a very young Charlotte Laurier if she wouldn’t mind being our “model”. She came with her friend François Gourd.

I recall a very pleasant shoot where we improvised easily, in places that Claude and I had previously scouted out. The editing process was undertaken – a rare thing – in absolute consensus, since every cut had been decided by both of us, jointly, sometimes after very long and lively discussions that were full of the joy of creating together.

This film has never been screened outside of the UQAM; we didn’t ask anyone anything before we used Mark Isham’s music.
