Le Cri d’Armand Vaillancourt is a documentary about a painter and sculptor who has shaped the history of Quebec by turning his own life into a work of art.
This committed artist and father of seven children uses art as a form of expression and social and political involvement. In this documentary film, we explore his colorful life, from his childhood to his exhibitions, public performances and projects through which he strives to revolutionize sculpture.
In his artwork as much as in his speeches, Armand Vaillancourt never misses the opportunity to create controversy by using bold ways to get his message across. Through our activist-at-heart, this documentary lets out a cry of distress for all the injustices that exist in today’s world; a cry of protest for an independent Québec; a cry of joy for the harmony between art and nature.
Directed by Jacques Bouffard, this documentary presents the life of a notorious artist who explores all aspects of his art to raise awareness for today’s most controversial issues.
