Cuban Song
À l'ombre

Cuban Song simply shows the effusion of life at the heart of the everyday - observing the ordinary, accessing the extraordinary and the unusual, and rendering the joy of discovering another culture. This travel journal is a reverie, a meditation, a hymn to Cubans and their vitality. We are carried away by anodyne details, much to the pleasure of eye and heart. The film finds its rhythm and breath in the music that pervades Cuban life. On July 6, 2006, filmmaker Fernand Bélanger passed away, leaving behind the first cut of Cuban Song. His long-time collaborators, Yves Angrignon and Louise Dugal, finished the film, respecting the spirit of their friend's work. This final film gives us privileged insight into the art of this great filmmaker, too soon departed
Director's biography
À l'ombre
Fernand Bélanger (1943-2006)

Native of Rivière-du-Loup, Fernand Bélanger worked in cinema as a film director, editor, and scriptwriter. As editor, he worked with many filmmakers in documentaries, animation, and fiction. He was considered "an outstanding, stimulating, and innovative filmmaker, known as much for his themes as for his style" (per Patrick Leboutte in Cinémaction.)
