HOCHELAGA, LAND OF SOULS
Director: FRANÇOIS GIRARD
Mohawk archaeologist Baptiste Asigny engages in a search for his ancestors following a tragic terrain slump in the Percival Molson Stadium, in François Girard’s multifaceted portrait of Montreal’s rich history. One of Canada's most accomplished filmmakers, Girard has tackled histories and epic narratives before in Thirty Two Short Films About Glenn Gould, The Red Violin, and Silk. Hochelaga, Land of Souls is his most ambitious project to date — a grand historical fresco that spans 750 years.
