Joséphine Bacon – Sous confidence de la lumière

The Museum and the International First Peoples Festival invite you to the screening of an interview by Jean Morisset with Innu poet Joséphine Bacon, accompanied by singer and actress Chloé Sainte-Marie.

Presented by the Fondation Maison Gilles-Carle, Joséphine Bacon – Sous confidence de la lumière, invites you into the world of Innu culture and traditions through the experience and particular sensibility of the Innu poet. What follows is a conversation on caregiving, illness and old age. Joséphine Bacon and Chloé Sainte-Marie share their inspiring alternative vision of caregiving, while comparing and contrasting their respective stories.
