Opening Night 2000-2001



The Canadian Film Institute, in collaboration with the National Archives of Canada, is proud to inaugurate the 2000-2001 season with the presentation of the restored version of the Canadian classic, Tit-Coq, on Wednesday September 27th at 7:30 p.m. in the Auditorium of the National Archives. This restored version was made possible with support from Astral Moviepix and the AV Preservation Trust.

The film written, directed and starring the legendary Gratien Gélinas tells the bittersweet love story and difficult social integration of a young soldier born of unknown parents who dreams of marrying his sweetheart Marie-Ange upon his return from World War II. Tit-Coq, adapted from the 1948 award winning play, stars Gratien Gélinas (1909-1999), who is considered one of the founders of modern Canadian theatre and film. His concern for the "common man" influenced many playwrights including Marcel Dubé, Yves Thériault, and Michel Tremblay. Tit-Coq captured the Best Canadian Film Award in 1953. Don’t miss the opportunity to see this classic in an archivally restored 35 mm print, presented in French with English sub-titles.
