A Song for Quebec
Dorothy Todd Henaut, Canada, 1988, 55 min

 
 

Produced in 1988, this feature documentary presents a living history of Quebec’s last 40 years as seen through the eyes of one couple. Pauline Julien and Gérald Godin, two Quebec artists, share their perspectives on the events that have marked Quebec’s evolution. Julien, a singer, and Godin, a poet, express their love and passion for the province (and each other) while providing a unique take on the Quebec nationalist movement.

 

Québec…?

Ce court métrage documentaire est un fascinant portrait du Québec urbain et rural à la fin des années 1960, alors que la province fait son entrée dans la modernité. L’œuvre collective réalisée pour le ministère de l’Industrie et du Commerce du Québec fait appel à plusieurs figures québécoises majeures, dont Michel Brault, Gilles Groulx et Gérald Godin.

L'Abbatiale de la
Liturgie Apocryphe

"The production of nervous force is directly connected with the diet of an individual, and its refining depends on the very purity of this diet, allied to appropriate breathing exercises.

The diet most calculated to act effectively on the nervous force is that which contains the least quantity of animal matter; therefore the Pythagorean diet, in this connection, is the most suitable.

...

The main object was to avoid introducing into the organism what Descartes called 'animal spirits'. Thus, all animals that had to serve for the nourishment of the priests were slaughtered according to special rites, they were not murdered, as is the case nowadays".
