Synopsis

Documentaire personnel de Manon Barbeau, fille de l'un des signataires. En 1948, le manifeste du Refus global de Paul-Émile Borduas proclame la fin du «règne de la peur multiforme» incarné par le régime duplessiste. Cinquante ans plus tard, tous les livres d'histoire font état de ce document qui jeta les bases du Québec moderne. La cinéaste est allée à la rencontre des fils et filles des Barbeau, Borduas, Mousseau et Riopelle, «enfants de Refus global» qui ont subi comme elle les conséquences du geste révolutionnaire de leurs parents. Aucun n'est sorti indemne d'une enfance faite d'inquiétudes et d'abandons, mais aussi d'une richesse que l'art seul peut apporter.
