Jongué, carnet nomade (Jongué, A Nomad’s Journey)
Feb 25

Spotlight on Québec: Jongué, carnet nomade (Jongué, A Nomad’s Journey) VOD // Hot Docs at Home

Born in France to a Polish mother and a Guyanese father, writer and photographer Serge Emmanuel Jongué arrived in Montreal in 1975 and would spend the following decades documenting the humanity and struggles of colonized peoples. Jongué’s massive body of work was ahead of its time, grappling with questions around identity, belonging and immigration that remain urgent today. Told through Jongué’s own words and images, Carlos Ferrand’s fascinating portrait creatively immortalizes the brilliant avant-garde vision of an activist artist who died too young, a precursor to many of the voices we hear today.

In French with English subtitles

This program is presented by SODEC, in collaboration with the Montreal International Documentary Festival (RIDM).

______________________________________________________

Né d'une mère polonaise et d'un père guyanais, Serge Emmanuel Jongué était un écrivain photographe hanté par les questions d’identité et de mémoire des peuples colonisés. Installé à Montréal dès les années 1970, Jongué a bâti une œuvre originale et percutante à l’avant-garde de questionnements actuels. Entièrement composé de textes et d’images de l’artiste, le nouveau film de Carlos Ferrand immortalise de façon créative la vie d’un artiste engagé, trop vite disparu, et précurseur de nombreuses voix qui s’élèvent de nos jours.

En français avec sous-titres en anglais
