Discover this sensitive portrait of Québec abstract painter Claude Tousignant, directed by his daughter Zoë. At 89 years old, his rate of production has begun to slow. His daughter, who is an art historian, installed a camera in his studio to document the making of his latest painting. This film will appeal to your senses through the vibrant colours of Tousignant’s paintings and the powerful silence of this introverted man, who has always preferred his own company to that of others.
