Hugo Latulippe / 2022 / 88 min. / FRENCH / ENGLISH SUBS / Canada

Synopsis

Twenty young actors are brought together for a creation lab by stage directors Véronique and Gabrielle Côté, to create a collective work at one of the great national theatres. Over a full year, they scour contemporary Québécois poetry to tap into the spirit of the times. Whether in workshop settings or at the four corners of the territory, we watch the creative process of Je me soulève unfold. What kind of people will we be in the future? How can art transform the world? Will we still be able to have children? Rebellious, filled with the passion of those who dream of beauty, obeying only their intuition, they come together to forge an ode to life. And when one of theirs is elected to the Quebec’s National Assembly, poetry literally becomes an integral part of the country’s political landscape.

Director's statement

This film is the continuation of my work and especially of my essay Pour nous libérer les rivières; Plaidoyer en faveur de l’art dans nos vies, published by Atelier 10 in 2019, and of my political art series Le Théâtre des opérations, shot around the world for ARTV in 2015. It’s about art and politics, the contribution of politically engaged artists, and the great issues of our times (women’s place in the world, the environment, our relationship with First Nations peoples, ancient knowledge, passing on knowledge, etc.). It’s a matter of tackling the current civilizational crisis with intuition and sensibility, that is, with the tools of the artist.
