Lands of the Americas
An art film and immersive documentary about the migrations, life, and works of lifelong artist René Derouin.
Lands of the Americas, like a travel diary, journeys through the works of René Derouin and the lands he has explored, choreographed in 360-degrees. Experienced in an immersive dome, this 360 film revolves around the artist’s identity quest that spanned his 60-year career.
The film’s storyline links the creations of this multidisciplinary artist to the key areas of his migrations: from Quebec to Mexico, reaching Japan and the United States, passing through Canada’s Far North, then returning to his homeland. Through mixed media and cinematography this virtual journey reveals the depth of Derouin’s interior ‘territories’ and expands his art to the dome.
As an art film and experimental documentary, Lands of the Americas is an immersive experience which delves into the heart of Derouin’s life work.
