Les restaurations de la CQ

June 5th - 24th, 2024

Quebec's Digital Cultural Plan has allowed us to deploy a program to digitize works from Quebec's audiovisual heritage. Since 2018, the Cinémathèque has digitized and restored around forty independent films. At the beginning of the month, Michel Moreau's humorous documentary on the lottery phenomenon, Le million tout-puissant, will be presented. Then, to celebrate Quebec's National Day, we present two films that delve into Quebec's musical folklore: Maricoquette qui a ni chaud ni frette, an animated short based on a song collected by oral tradition historian Luc Lacourcière; and Oscar Thiffault, a portrait of the author and performer of Rapide blanc, a song composed in 1954 while he was working at the Hydro-Québec dam of the same name.

The restoration of this film is part of the implementation of a measure in Quebec's Digital Cultural Plan.
