BANGALORE | As part of the International Month of the #Francophonie, the Quebec Government Office in Mumbai organizes, in collaboration with the Alliance Française de Bangalore, a screening of the Quebec film ''The Essence of a Country | Le goût d'un pays''. The film will be screened in French with English subtitles.

THE ESSENCE OF A COUNTRY is a meeting between Gilles Vigneault and Fred Pellerin during maple syrup season. It is a choral documentary that tells about Québec through one of its most emblematic rituals. It is a hymn to maple syrup and to the people who produce it. In the clear and inspiring light of spring, a drop of sap pearls on the point of the blowpipe. The two poets pick it up and spin the metaphors. The maple syrup making traditions takes the form of vibrant pictures. The richness of the words and the power of simple gestures reveal the beauty and fragility of Quebec’s culture.

LE GOÛT D'UN PAYS, c'est la rencontre de Gilles Vigneault et de Fred Pellerin au temps des sucres. C'est un documentaire choral qui raconte le pays à travers un des rituels les plus emblématiques du Québec. C'est un hymne au sirop d'érable et au peuple qui le produit. Dans la lumière franche et inspirante du printemps, une goutte de sève perle sur la pointe du chalumeau. Les deux poètes la cueillent et filent la métaphore. La tradition des sucriers prend l'allure de vibrants tableaux. La richesse des mots d'ici et la puissance des gestes simples laissent entrevoir la beauté et la fragilité de notre culture.
