Que cache le conflit étudiant pour durer si longtemps?

Je ne pouvais rester silencieuse et immobile devant ce phénomène des casseroles, ces milliers de gens qui sortent à 20h pour se regrouper avec leurs concitoyens et faire du bruit. Mais parfois, il est difficile de savoir quel ton aborder devant des situations aussi complexes. Car les motifs pour sortir les outils de cuisine sont nombreux et variés.

Quand Michel Venne, de l’Institut du Nouveau Monde (INM), m’a damandé de monter des équipes de vidéastes pour récolter les témoignages des “casseroleurs”, c’était l’occasion parfaite de me lancer dans la foule et d’essayer de mieux saisir la colère, l’éveil, la joie ou l’indignation de ces manifestants.

Voici donc le premier résultat de cette récolte de témoignages. Une version longue est à venir.


L’INM a contribué à une meilleure compréhension du conflit étudiant de diverses façons, que vous pouvez consulter ici.

Appelez-moi Salma sur ARTE partout en Europe

C’est tout à fait par hasard qu’on a découvert hier que Appelez-moi Salma a joué sur ARTE les 9 et 16 novembre dernier! On savait déjà que la vente du film à la chaine franco-allemande avait été officialisée, mais on ne connaissait pas encore les dates de diffusion.

Hélas! on l’a découvert un peu trop tard… mais n’empêche, on est très heureux de savoir que tous les Européens on pu voir le film à la télé! En plus, ARTE en a fait la diffusion sur Internet jusqu’au 21 novembre. Quelqu’un s’est même amusé à copier le film et à mettre les 15 premières minutes sur YouTube.

L’avant-première du documentaire aura lieu à Dijon le 3 Novembre prochain au Festival international du film d’aventure à Dijon en France.

Me voy a Perú!

It’s been a while, I know. But don’t worry because if you drop by our site and there hasn’t been a lot of updates, it’s probably because we’re extremely busy developing or working on something: some of which will be posted online soon! But what’s really been taking up my time (not Aude’s because she is currently in Lebanon) are the preps for a documentary that I’ll be shooting next week in Peru.

Essentially I was chosen to produce, shoot, direct and edit a documentary about an expedition in the Cordillera Blanca of Peru. The man behind the expedition is Bernard Voyer: a world-renowned explorer who traveled to the North and South Pole as well as Mount Everest.

His idea essentially is to gather young socially engaged teenagers from the most isolated areas of Québec (Kuujjuaq, La tabatière to name a few) and give them the chance to come together and visit other isolated areas of the world (i.e the mountains of Peru) and do community work and to surmount a trek that might seem insurmountable to many.

You can read the press release by clicking this link

So I’ll be following these teenagers, filming them along their way. Might seem fun and simple but the more I prepare the more I realize that this will be extremely demanding and exhausting. For example:

-I am entirely responsible for 12 days to shoot and direct the film alone in a foreign country.

-For 6 days, I will be at 3500m+ in altitude, sleeping in a tent with no electricity. Temperature will fluctuate from + 25 degrees Celsius to – 10 at night. So how is my equipment going to handle that?

-They say the climate is arid, but last I checked it’s been raining for the last week.

-I have to lug the majority of my equipment for a trek of 62kms in mountainous terrain.

So…. how am i going to handle this??

I’ll do my best to post on the spot updates. But considering the area we’ll be in expect more to get delayed transcribed versions of my daily journals that I will be bringing with me for the next two weeks.

Expect to find updates on this projects in our new tab on the right hand side of our site: ‘Peru project’

Also important to note that the project could not have been possible without the support of:

LOJIQ (l’Office internationaux du Québec)

The canadian Rangers

and DBcom média

thanks and stay tuned,

ps. Tu me manques Aude! xoxoo

Arctic Mosque opens it’s doors!

The little mosque in the arctic that’s been causing an international media buzz has finally opened its doors yesterday november 10th at 2pm.

Since the mosque’s arrival in Inuvik on September 23rd, many people lent a helping hand to help finish the final needed renovations. A contractor from Ontario, who had heard about the mosque on the news offered to help out, he later designed and built a 32 foot minaret.

Hussain Guisti, general manager of the Zubaidah Tallab foundation in Winnipeg, organized and raised funds to build and send the mosque to Inuvik. He arrived in Inuvik yesterday to inaugurate its opening.

We would like to show you images and video, but all we can say is that we’re in negotiations to broadcast a little piece on this amazingly uplifting story. So keep on reading our blog for the latest news!

It’s great to see this story get press, below are a few links from international media:

Nouvelle interface! New look!

L’automne est une saison de changements, et pour l’occasion notre site adopte une nouvelle allure! Un look un peu different, mais les mêmes contenus et à peu près la même navigation. Merci de nous suivre, à contre-courants, ou dans le sens du poil…

Fall is a season of change, and for this occasion our site has adopted a new look! A look that might be a bit different but where the content pretty much still navigates the way it used to. Thanks again for supporting us, even if some of you might have given us the hairy eyeball along the way…

Mosque arrives in Inuvik!

picture courtesy of 'Saira Rahman'

If you overheard the small-talk in Inuvik these past weeks you probably heard something about the ‘little mosque in the tundra’, or ‘the little mosque in the arctic’. Everybody in Inuvik, us included, were eagerly anticipating the arrival of the mosque.

Rumours were circulating and everybody (this included the shipping company) seemed to have a different idea of when the mosque was to arrive. The mosque which was built in Winnipeg by the Zubaidah Tallab foundation was shipped on September 1st by truck to Hay River NWT and then by barge to Inuvik on the Mackenzie river to finally arrive, to the surprise of many in Inuvik, September 22nd at 5:30pm. The total distance travelled by the mosque was roughly 4000 kms.

After having called our taxi driver friends  (who are almost all muslim) about the mosque’s immediate arrival, it wasn’t long before they showed up alongside their family and friends. Roughly 30 people greeted the mosque with waves, cameras, prayers and smiles.

The mosque is in town, but a lot of work still needs to be done before it’s opening. Tomorrow, it will be lifted and dropped on their newly purchased plot of land. Afterwards, a good month of interior touch ups will be needed in order to officially open its doors.

A lot more information to come, including video!

So stay tuned!
