Jocelyn Sioui - Mononk Jules (La série Les Beaux Dimanches)

Attrait touristique des Hautes-Laurentides coup de coeur

In short

February 13th - 3pm

This solo documentary show places Jocelyn Sioui at the heart of history. He draws on the small and large threads of his great-uncle’s story, but also on the little-known history of 20th-century natives. Surrounded by screens and models that come to life with historical figures and images, he takes us deep into a box of archives from which we emerge changed. Funny, touching and energetic, Mononk Jules is a captivating story delivered with authenticity by an infectious performer.

Everything starts in 1940. Even though it all started before that. All healthy men are conscripted, even the natives. Except that Indians do not have the right to vote, they are not Canadian, and the Indian Act considers them to be less than children.

For Mononk Jules, conscription without the right to vote is the beginning of the war. Between 1940 and 1950, he fought against the Canadian government and made the ultimate sacrifice: a hunger strike. Its objective: The independence of the First Nations. Mononk Jules is also the story of a guy who tries to understand how history is written or not written. Which sometimes plunges him into the depths of history that has never been taught, sometimes even into the depths of himself. A guy who tells it all almost always with a smile on his face.
