The night is falling and Montreal is under the snow. People line up at the lost and found office of the city’s transit company. They all have lost something, which, upon reflection, becomes the symbol of a deeper loss. Prayer for a Lost Mitten is a creative documentary by turns melancholic and festive, yet ever compassionate. A film that helps us get through the winter.

Jean-François Lesage

After studying law, Jean-François Lesage began his career as a journalist for radio and canadian television in Alberta and British Columbia. In 1998, shaken by the discovery of chinese cinema, he headed to Beijing, where he was to spend six years. This is where he directed his first creative documentary, Sweet Nights Sour Nights (2004). He followed this up with How Can You Tell if the Little Fish are Happy? (2009) co-directed with his brother Philippe Lesage. Back in Montréal, he then made A Mile End Tale (2013), followed by A Summer Love (2015). The Hidden River (2017), his fourth feature, won the special jury prize at the RIDM.
