Twelve of Us

1982, 05:00 minutes, colour, English


In Twelve Of Us, Courchesne presents twelve adults recounting the tale "Goldilocks and the Three Bears." Placed in front of the same dry black backdrop, each actor, one by one, presents in turn a part of the tale as the story unfolds. While each narrator recites his/her segment in his/her own way, the editing accentuates both the uniqueness and rapport of the story telling. The spectator also becomes a participant, rediscovering the tale simultaneously with the actors.

Douze personnes tentent de se souvenir de l'histoire de Boucle d'or et les trois ours. Reconstitué tant bien que mal, le conte n'est cependant qu'un prétexte pour montrer ce qu'il est resté de l'enfance sur des visages adultes. C'est aussi pour l'auteur un portrait de famille, la famille au sein de laquelle il fait ses premières expériences avec la vidéo.
