Production : Bruno Guay, Philippe Lesage - Pourrons-nous vivre ensemble

After requiring a heart procedure and spending four days in the emergency ward at Hôtel-Dieu hospital, Philippe Lesage decided to make a film there. Not because he wanted to reveal what we usually see in the media or on TV dramas, but because he was deeply touched by the dedication of the hospital employees who “never seem to sleep.” He spent several days filming inside Hôtel-Dieu. The result is a contemplative piece comprised of long takes showing something we never see: ordinary suffering and the work of the people who try to ease it.
