Inspired by the life of his great-uncle Jules Sioui, one of the greatest Indigenous heroes of the 20th century, Jocelyn Sioui paints a portrait of a fascinating man and, through him, of an indigenous history obscured by white memory.
Through the use of miniatures and projections, surrounded by boxes of archives, Jocelyn Sioui magically transports us from one historical event to the next. Funny, touching and energetic, Mononk Jules is a captivating story delivered with authenticity by Jocelyn Sioui.
