Matin Ecchymose

Emilie Peltier / 2020 / 7 min. / France / FRENCH, Quebec Sign Language / FRENCH SUBS , ENGLISH SUBS


Deaf people from Quebec City meet non-binary Acadian poet Mo Bolduc and, using the Quebec sign language, interpret some poems written during the latter's residency at the Maison de la littérature (Québec) in March 2020. The film is the result of this encounter between read texts and their appropriation by Karl Normand, Maritza Côté, Josée Villeneuve and Élisabeth Rhéaume, as powerful, poetic and tangible echoes.
