LE VIOLON DE GASTON
Fiction, 1974, 22 min

This short fiction film about a young boy torn between conflicting loyalties is resolved with humour and wisdom. Sunday, 2 o'clock, is zero hour for Gaston. He must be in two places at once: performing at a music recital and playing hockey with his teammates. What is Gaston to do?
LES TACOTS
Fiction, 1974, 22 min

Two very determined groups oppose each other: a group of boys who have feverishly prepared for a soap-box derby, and a group of girls who want very much to be included in the event. The boys make it clear to them that the derby is just not the place for girls, but in this battle of the sexes, the strong will and courage of the girls wins out, although in the end everyone is laughing.
This event is part of the official programming of the 2017 Yukon Rendez-vous de la Francophonie.
