Imaginary Tales is a documentary feature best described as the portrait of an author about and with André Forcier. It is the story of an exceptional and undeniable filmmaker in our national cinema’s landscape and a pillar at the heart of its identity. It is a chance to revisit his body of work, known for its heavy dose of magical realism, through the re-enactment of scenes from throughout his filmography. It is a stroll through his world: appearing sometimes as a recollection, a footprint or a memory.
