Reflections of contemporary creativity and witnesses to a cultural legacy, films on art transcend genres and borders, and invite us to think about what it means to be human and the issues facing our multicultural societies. Through projections, presentations, round tables, previews, concerts and meetings with the directors, this fourth edition of the Journées Internationales du Film sur L’Art gives an overview of the tremendous creativity, past and present, of films on art.

2:30 p.m. – Bull’s Eye, un peintre à l’affût – Canada, 2010, dir. Bruno Boulianne, 77 min

Marc Séguin (born in Ottawa in 1970) is considered one of the most talented painters of his generation. Each of his new exhibitions is eagerly awaited by collectors. A student of Molinari and admirer of Riopelle, the artist has created a dense and complex oeuvre that is sombre and profound; it mixes genres and is endlessly fascinating. A paradoxical person, a man of the soil who values craftsmanship, Marc Séguin creates eminently contemporary works. This film traces the unique path of an artist, who, between the city – Montreal or New York – and the wild vastness of nature, has built an oeuvre inextricably linked to the elements, in which the relationship to the land and to animals is essential. A hunter of images and a hunter of game, Marc Séguin explores nature and its mysteries, an approach that gives his painting its unique character.
