Archipel [Archipelago] expands into a semi-fictional odyssey through filmmaker Félix Dufour-Laperrière’s native province, Québec, captured in a composition of creative animation and a partly documentary style. It offers an immersive experience, a psychogeographic meditation along the Saint Lawrence River and its archipelago of Thousand Islands. Blurring the boundaries between the real and the imagined, the poetic narrative of this animated documentary questions the role of storytelling and what makes a piece of land into a region, and a community.

Premiered in February 2021 at the International Film Festival Rotterdam, Archipel [Archipelago] was awarded a jury prize at the Annecy International Animation Film Festival the same year.
