Explore the life and times of René Lévesque, who made his mark on the history of contemporary Quebec like no one before or since. Through an exhibition, short documentary film, and video projection, (re)discover the life and achievements of the man and political figure.
One of the three parts will take place at the Espace culturel Georges-Émile-Lapalme of Place des Arts, with a screening of the short documentary film Quelque chose comme un grand homme by Luc Cyr. This will bring you back to the shockwave felt by every Quebecois upon Mr. Lévesque’s passing. A book will also be made available to welcome your words and celebrate his memory.
