LANGUAGE AND LITERATURE | 78 min
Driven from the outset by the poetry of language, Stéphanie David’s documentary Bittersweet Blues draws us into a parallel between the evolution of Acadian French and family memories.
Acadian filmmaker Herménégilde Chiasson’s docufiction Jack Kerouac’s Road – A Franco-American Odyssey retraces the steps of this iconic Beat Generation figure, whose work, including the famous novel On the Road, profoundly influenced the cultural, sexual, and social revolution of the 1960s.
