Dr Biermans, 70' a true story This biographical documentary retraces the hectic life of a self-made man, Hubert Biermans (1864-1953). Starting from scratch, he managed to show his abilities as an entrepreneur and proved to be a great champion of social welfare in Canada.He was first involved in 1890 in the construction of the first railway line in the Congo under Leopold II, King of the Belgians, before being sent to Canada in 1900 in Shawinigan to set up a paper mill, the 'Belgo', which would become the world's first pulp mill. It is the journey of a personality who marked his time. Who left his mark on Shawinigan, Mauricie and Quebec. He also left his mark on Europe and Paris in particular. The fortune of this philanthropist allowed him an unbounded generosity by his donations for numerous constructions of schools, universities, hospitals, EHPAD ... Today, bulldozers are destroying the 'Belgo', this mill which was one of the jewels of Mauricie. Production year 2021 The Tempest Stela, 65' Revisiting the roots of the Exodus Is the Book of Exodus based on real events? 3500 years ago, a huge volcanic eruption destroyed half the island of Santorini. That global catastrophe was possibly the cause of the Plagues of Egypt; they are mentioned on a mysterious inscription on a stone stela translated 50 years ago by Egyptologist Claude Vandersleyen. This is the starting point of a fascinating investigation which sheds new light on the history of Egypt in the time of the Pharaohs, as well as upon parts of the Old Testament. Production year 2017 Mad about Hats 63' The film traces the tumultuous history of the hat to the present day. The beaver, which was decimated in Europe for its hair used to produce felt, was trapped as far away as America, as early as the 17th century. The conquest of North America is intrinsically linked to the rush for beaver skins. At the beginning of the 20th century, the industry was flourishing until the 1960's and already, the hair of another rodent, the rabbit, was the happiness of hatters. Then came the crisis, and the film travels through devastated mono-industrial cities in Portugal, France and Belgium. Today, there are niche markets: Tyrolean, Orthodox Jewish or cowboy hats. Portugal exports semi-finished products that hatters from all over the world shape. The film looks at the hat as a fashion accessory. Celebrities such as Michael Jackson, Johnny Depp, Lady Gaga show how the hat is an essential accessory to assert one's individuality. Production year 2014
