The work of Norman Laliberté, one of the most creative designers of banners in North America. He is shown in his workroom, piecing and stitching together bits of varicoloured fabric to create figures and symbols reminiscent of ancient pomp and pageantry. Music and movement in the film heighten this effect. His arrangement of shapes and colours grows, before your eyes, into a bold, glowing canvas in cloth.
