Book Impetus D

e l’élan à l’écran

Jennifer Alleyn

Éditions Somme Toute, 2019, 184 p.


Including the film's screenplay, as well as unprecedented scenes to be viewed on a smart phone, this book allows you to enter the heart of Impetus' creative movement and its challenge of updating the "crazy dream" of direct cinema.

In the form of a logbook, filmmaker Jennifer Alleyn shares her thoughts, ideas held and abandoned during the manufacturing process. The book thus extends the experience of the film and updates the initial questioning of the project: where does the impulse come from? What drives us, makes us act?

Available in booksellers from October 15, 2019

Launch on October 22, 2019 at the Cinémathèque Québécoise, 5 pm

335 Boulevard de Maisonneuve Est, Montréal, QC H2X 1K1
