A cultural mediation project carried out by Spira and the Joujouthèque de la Basse-ville with the objective to create short films with underprivileged youth and/or youth from immigrant backgrounds from the inner city of Quebec. This project resulted in the short documentary film Faire le pont directed by Clarissa Rebouças and 8 to 9 year olds from the Joujouthèque Basse-Ville.
A word from Tënk
Faire le pont is a sweet and short film in which children take us on a journey into the simplicity of meeting and discovering the other. They question strangers, share their drawings and favourite colours while questioning their relationship to the world. It is through their words and interactions that we rediscover the movements of childhood: a natural and curious impulse towards the other, the simplicity of making connections.
