Des histoires inventées Jean-Marc E.Roy

Imaginary Tales

“Creative documentary.” The term could have been coined to describe the latest film by Jean-Marc E.Roy. Like its subject – the straight-shooting filmmaker and gentle dreamer André Forcier – Imaginary Tales eschews simple portraiture for a deeper dialogue with the great Québécois director’s filmic world. Forcier becomes the subject, actor and inspiration for a work that shifts with ease between the real and the imaginary, switching without warning from talking-head interviews to fresh takes of scenes from Forcier’s films, replayed by the original actors. The famous director nonchalantly steps into his films then returns to reality, or possibly vice versa: with Forcier, cinema is everywhere. (BD)
