Quebec City and Robert Lepage

I was in Quebec City last week for an international librarians’ conference,  and I really enjoyed Robert Lepage’s art installation about Quebec’s history (created in honour of the city’s 400th anniversary).  Historical photos, films, and animations are projected onto enormous grain silos at 10 p.m. each night.

Speaking of Robert Lepage, if you like Quebec City, a neat pair of movies to watch one after the other are  Hitchcock’s I Confess and Robert Lepage’s Le Confessional.  They both take place in Quebec City, and the Lepage film contains interesting references to the Hitchcock film.
