A true animated film about invented islands. About an imaginary, linguistic, political territory. About a real or dreamed country, or something in between. Archipelago is a film made of drawings and speeches. It speaks and dreams of a place and its inhabitants, to speak and dream a little about our world and times.
Born in 1981 in Quebec, Félix Dufour-Laperrière is a director, screenwriter and producer. His work, which shows a constant tension between the narrative and formal exploration, maintains a close connection with the visual and contemporary arts. His films, including the documentary Transatlantique (IFFR Rotterdam 2014), have been presented in numerous festivals, museums and events of importance, where they have won several awards. Ville Neuve (2018), his first animated feature, drawn and painted entirely on paper, had its world premiere at the Mostra (Venice Days) and has since been released in theaters in Quebec, France and Japan.
