The nature of cinema is to reveal. But filmmaking goes beyond that thanks to its power to shape our identity and conscience. It is a particularly fulfilling and even therapeutic art. In this sense, the creative process can be likened to a quest, with the ensuing work a testament to the discoveries made. There is self-discovery, of course, but there is also the discovery of others and of the surrounding world. last summer, the FNC enabled some 30 children from Co^te-des-Neiges to take part in the sixth edition of a self-empowering cinema camp called les P’tits Loups. Within this creative space, these children from immigrant families were able to explore and engage, through art and action, with such concepts as “you/i” and “us/them.” Between Mrs. Pilon’s community garden and their own “secret” gardens, these budding filmmakers took a deeper look at themselves and their relationship with others as they drew self-portraits on glass. At the same time, the young artists created a spontaneous portrait of the future of Quebec society.
