Pierre Perrault Film Works - Volume 5: The Great River / L'oeuvre de Pierre Parrault - Volume 5 : le fleuve 3 x DVD
The works of Pierre Perrault are unique in world cinema heritage. They directly capture the spoken word and life, filmed by an explorer and poet who set out to discover a corner of humankind not recorded in books.

From St. Malo, Brittany, to Ile-aux-Coudres, Quebec, these films invite us on a voyage retracing the route of the celebrated explorer Jacques Cartier. As sailors and St. Malo locals take the measure of the great navigator, Perrault conjures his life, his age and the exploration that took him to Ile-aux-Coudres. The film is an eye-opening portrait of the St. Malo native.

In the majestic and poetic La grande allure (The Great Obsession), Pierre Perrault and his characters board a sailboat to retrace the 1534 voyage undertaken by Cartier, who conquered the St. Lawrence and laid French claim to the New World.
