During the evening organized by the Ordre des ingénieurs du Québec this past October 24, the film’s producer, Ginette Petit, went on stage to pay a heartfelt tribute.
“During our search for film locations, how many times did team members tell me: “Just call your forestry engineer, Ginette, to see if this would be possible in REAL life,” she said.
“We were immediately captivated by [Denis’] professionalism and his timeliness. He always responded with accuracy and attention to detail. He’s excellent at making complex information accessible, and he is a forest enthusiast. He infected the entire technical team with his passion.”
Denis also contributed to the development of a book that is currently in bookstores called Dans la lentille de “Il pleuvait des oiseaux.” The book offers the chance to see video stills for an extended immersion into the visual universe of this unforgettable narrative, and contains text written by Denis about his passion and love for the forest and his work.
