COMMENT CONQUÉRIR L’AMÉRIQUE EN UNE NUIT

Newly arrived in Montréal, and determined to conquer North America by charming blond-haired women, Gégé, a Haitian in his thirties, lands up at Fanfan's -- an unambitious uncle who has given up poetry for a good old taxicab.

Over the course of one night filled with humour and friendship -- highlighted by a party attended by twins Andrée and Denise, two Quebecers with contrasting charms, the two fun-loving guys take stock of their lives, memories and fantasies. Meanwhile, on television -- an omnipresent character in the story -- various celebrities draw up a comic portrait of North American society.

The night comes to a somewhat unexpected end, with the two entertaining protagonists ready to embark on a conquest of...America!

Dany Laferrière
Director

A talented and prolific writer, Dany Laferrière -- Haitian by birth, Quebecois by adoption, unrepentant North American -- achieved fame with his first novel, How to Make Love to a Negro. His writing offers a remarkable look at Haitian, Quebec and North American society, which Laferrière depicts with both humour and incisive clarity. How to Make Love to a Negro was turned into a successful feature film, with Laferrière writing the screenplay. Comment conquérir l’Amérique en une nuit marks his feature-film directorial debut.
