The Megaphone Reel focuses on Gilles Garand, a colourful individual, a passionate promoter of Québec's living heritage and an ardent champion of workers' rights. Serge Giguère presents a lively portrait of this man of action, harmonica and accordion player, CNTU servicing representative and organizer of La Grande Rencontre. Filmed in Montréal, Québec City and France, this musical documentary offers a rare opportunity to hear the undisputed masters of Québec traditional music, Aldor Morin and Philippe Bruneau, who are featured at La Grande Rencontre

In keeping with Serge Giguère's exemplary work--he has won three Québec critics' awards for Oscar Thiffault, le roi du drum and 9, St-Augustin--The Megaphone Reel bears witness to the vitality of popular culture and the value of social commitment. In French with English subtitles.
