Antitube and Festival de la bande dessinée francophone de Québec are proud to present


Pascal Rabaté

A dramatic comedy adapted from the eponymous comic, Les petits ruisseaux is a fresh and deeply tender look at seniors in search of a second youth.

Rabaté was born in France and started drawing comics in 1989, after studies in gravure at École des Beaux-Arts d'Angers. From his very first releases, Rabaté’s originality shone through. Public and critical acclaim came with his adaptation of Aleksey Nikolayevich Tolstoy’s Ibicus, a smash with both critics and the public (“Best book” at the Angoulême Festival de la Bande Dessinnée; Canal BD award from comic retailers). In 2006 Les petits ruisseaux was published by Futuropolis and another work, written by Rabaté and illustrated by David Prudhomme, again took honors at Angoulême.

April 16, Musée de la civilisation, 2 p.m., free admission.

Pascal Rabaté will be in attendance and available for discussion after the screening.
