Giguère returns to his beloved Victoriaville with this remarkable examination of the spread of consumer culture, where everything and everyone is disposable. Giguère looks at this problem through the eyes of Raymond Roy, a militant worker priest who works with the elderly, the unemployed and the homeless to organize and operate food co-ops, homeless shelters, recycling depots and home industries in deindustrializing Victoriaville. Despite a clear political vision of solidarity and collective action by the dispossessed, Roy often verges on despair, expressing his doubts in intimate diary entries. Giguère’s careful portrait of Roy is alternately angry and humorous, but always inspiring. David McIntosh
