Jongué, a Nomad's Journey

Serge Emmanuel Jongué was a writer and photographer haunted by questions around the identity and memory of colonized peoples. Jongué’s origins were Guyanese and Polish. He was a fan of comic books, journalism and literature, and he created an original, powerful body of work. His poetic and political texts enter into dialogue with images whose remarkable textures bring the shadows into sharp relief. In the 1970s, Jongué settled in Montreal, where he became closely involved with the First Nations and was an early activist on issues that have since become crucial. Composed entirely of words and images by Jongué, Carlos Ferrand’s latest film creatively immortalizes an activist artist who died too young, a precursor to many of the voices we hear today.
