Synopsis

Ce court métrage d'animation de Martine Chartrand (Âme noire) raconte le lien d'amitié tissé au Québec, vers 1933, entre Félix Leclerc et Frank Randolph Macpherson, un ingénieur-chimiste jamaïcain qui inspira au célèbre poète une chanson sur la drave. Entre fiction et documentaire, à travers des séquences porteuses d’Histoire et autour de la mise en images de la chanson, la cinéaste réalise une animation de peinture sur verre, évoquant avec délicatesse les sentiments qui auraient lié l’ingénieur et l’une des sœurs du poète.
