Mathieu Trottier Kavanagh
Your project has entered in our festival. What is your project about?
The production of the short film "REBELLION" was mainly aimed at preparing the feature film "AUX ÂMES PATRIOTES" which is on the same theme of the history of the patriots of 1837-1838 in Lower Canada. We then decided to send it to various festivals around the world to tell our still little-known story.
What are your ambitions with your project?
The ambition that I have for the project is above all to be able to help us with the production of the feature film and potentially to promote the story of the Patriots throughout the world.
Tell us something about your shooting? What pleasantly surprised you?
What surprised me the most of all is the great enthusiasm for this historical period and that we had a lot of help for the production, we had the opportunity to film in a historic location and have access to period weapons which were actually used during the rebellions.
For what group of spectators is your film targeted?
It is especially aimed at those who are passionate about history, but especially little-known history and who wish to discover more.
