Production Notes:


Premiere was at the Ottawa International Animation Festival in October 2010; release date reflects first showing at the Leipzig DOK Festival later that same month. Released in French.

The movie is a painful research into depression, psychosis, and how it gets into a suicide.

It is about Lipsett, but aims to unveil the problem of "suicide" and "depression" in general and the young people's occasional destroying desire to morbidly imitate their heroes and icons, who died young (like the suicides of Ian Curtis, Kurt Cobain and Sarah Kane, just to name a few).

It doesn't make Lipsett a hero. It simply "deconstructs" the life of a talented, too early lionized young filmmaker and his last days.

In his films, Canadian filmmaker Arthur Lipsett used a collage style to comment on the fragmented nature of modern society, but his films were more of a reflection of his own struggle to find an identity. As his world became increasingly disjointed and incoherent (one where his mother had committed suicide) wasn't death the only natural road to freedom? Did his sense of self shatter so completely that the only way to restore balance and wholeness was through suicide?

Foreign Language Title: "Les Journaux de Lipsett (French)."
