Georges Remi, otherwise known as Hergé, will always be remembered as the creator of Tintin. It was thanks to this series that he became one of the great authors and artists of the Twentieth Century, who made an impression not only on millions of young readers but also on the contemporary art scene. But he was a complex and complicated artist, consumed by his work, preoccupied with spirituality and obsessed with achieving perfection. And, like many great artists, fame did nothing to lessen his burden.
Presented in French in collaboration with the Festival International du film sur l’art as part of Les journées de la culture.
Free tickets available at Victoria Hall and the Westmount Public Library.
