Morisset, le film

Morisset, le film, is a 105 minutes film created by François Morissette, assisted by his sister Evelyne Morissette for the text and visual aspects and by his brother Daniel Morissette for the narration.

Papy Morissette tells the history of the Morissette to his grandson, from the arrival from France, passing through Buckland up to Abitibi.

We mentioned the film in La Moricetterie of December 2015 (number 103).
