In 2011, Ginelle Chagnon, a close associate of Jean-Pierre Perreault from 1984 to 1999, conducted a series of approximately 90-minute interviews with six of his collaborators in order to preserve their memories of the man. They talk about their relationships with Perreault, the works in which they were involved and their approaches to the creative process.
