Good News from the Sun (Part 2) 2014-2016


In Good News from the Sun (Part 2), a director is asked to work with local youths to create a play, but the power dynamics shift as the teenagers move on with their lives, leaving the director without a group to work with. Alone, tired and jaded, the director resolves to find success in her work against all odds. Part 2 is a 30 minute video project that uses puppets, live documentary footage and animation to tell the story.

Dans Good News from the Sun (Partie 2) (2014 – 2016),une directrice reçoit comme mandat de travailler avec des jeunes de la région pour créer une pièce de théâtre. La dynamique change lorsque les jeunes décident de passer à autre chose et que la directrice se retrouve sans groupe à diriger. Seule, épuisée et désabusée, elle décide contre vents et marées de réussir son pari. Cette deuxième partie est un projet vidéo qui raconte l’histoire avec des marionnettes, des prises de documentaire en direct et des animations.

STO Union remercie le Conseil des arts du Canada pour le financement de Good News from the Sun, lequel provient de la Feuille de route pour les langues officielles du Canada 2013-2018 : Éducation, immigration, communautés.
