Library and Archives Canada Gratien Gélinas: One of Our Own

Gratien Gélinas is considered one of the founders of modern Canadian theatre and film. He was a playwright, director, actor, filmmaker and administrator of cultural organizations. His personifications of the common man paved the way for many of Quebec’s leading scriptwriters, and he gave a voice, at home and abroad, to French Canada’s culture and society. This episode features Anne-Marie Sicotte, granddaughter of Gratien Gélinas, who talks about his life and legacy.
