Despite a week of rain and cold, our Gesgapegiag stopover 2016 seems as promising as the lobster season here in Gaspésie: with no less than seven film projects, we have sprung into our production schedule!
Among these projects, this year, Zachary Greenleaf, our filmmaker assistant and winner of the 2014 Bell Media Public’s Choice Award for his film "Where The River Widens", decided to swap the fishing boat for the cornfield; DJ XS7, a Musique nomade seasoned participant and Wapikoni filmmaker, returned with a video where tradition and modernity meet; Naomi Condo, trained at UQAM and Concordia University, is interested in indigenous women stereotypes; Darlene Jerome, filmmaker and traditional singer, has also shown interest in a movie about some historical moments from within the community.
New participants have also come to visit the studios with interesting ideas and others have intentions to participate in the filming of other projects.
Hoping that a better weather will allow us to transform the good ideas in real projects soon ...!
Emmet, Clark, Jacinthe and Zachary
