Traduction – Site Web de Marie Laberge – Année 1989
My first year as a novelist and film director
(Officially, that is, since I wrote my first novel at 11! Also, I co-directed the film)
But first… Aurélie’s great run.
Henri Barras takes the production from the Trident to the Café de la place.
The cast remains unchanged, though the set is somewhat smaller… and the play’s still a hit.
Note: In November, the play is performed at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa. A rare occurrence: the actresses gave over 100 performances!
I co-direct the TV movie Les Heures précieuses, which I also wrote, with Mireille Goulet at Les Productions du Verseau.
A huge amount of work right up to the finished film on October 16.
Mireille Goulet, co-director.
My sister Louise, assistant director.
My brother Jacques, first AD.
Thomas Vamos, DOP and a great ally.
The usual photo of the cast and crew
Taken in front of the house where most of the film was shot.
The cast: Denise Gagnon, Micheline Bernard, Martin Drainville, Paule Baillargeon, Linda Sorgini, Denis Bernard, Raymond Bouchard, Mimi D’Estée, Kim Yarochevskaia.
I saw it again in the summer of 2007 (18 years later) and was amazed at how topical it remains.
I write Pierre ou la consolation
It’s theatre, yet with a particular language
I write Le Coeur de la beauté for the « Souffrir pour être belle » exhibition at the Musée de la civilisation in Quebec City.
Éditions Fides/Musée de la civilisation.
September: The brand new Théâtre de la Licorne on Papineau Street in Montreal opens with Jocelyne Trudelle trouvée morte dans ses larmes.
I direct the play. New music score (Vincent Beaulne), new cast (except for Micheline Bernard, who reprises the role she created)
This was her Laberge year: one movie and two plays…
And my first novel, published by Boréal on November 7.
