Festival du Bois presents Journey to the Pacific by Sylvie Roussell-Janssens: This two-part, large-scale, multimedia installation was inspired from the journals of Alexander Mackenzie, published in 1801, in which he describes his transcontinental voyage. While reading his accounts, Sylvie felt the need to know more about certain aspects of the trip, including learning more about the Francophone and Native crew on board.
