Nouveau film sur Louisbourg

January 2014

Le nouveau film documentaire — Louisbourg, un rêve d’Amérique — a été diffusé en France sur FR3. Le film était tourné pendant 2013, le tricentenaire de la fondation de Louisbourg, par Marc Jouanny et Françoise Mamolar. Il contient beaucoup de belles images, un narratif génial, et des entrevues avec plusieurs historiens, y compris moi. J’espère que dans un proche avenir le film serait diffusé au Canada.

My step-mother wanted to crop out the others: Premier John Savage, federal Minister Dave Dingwall and others. So she went to a photo shop and this is the result. You can make out some of the feet of the missing people if you study the ground.

J. B. Johnston’s latest book, Thomas: A Secret Life.
