Homme de famille, travailleur de la construction, représentant syndical., Prisonnier Qui est Jocelyn Dupuis?
Family Man, Construction Worker, Union Rep., Prisoner… Who is Jocelyn Dupuis?
Le Blink is the story of a man who started off as a construction worker and rose to the head of the biggest construction union in Quebec, Canada to then have it all taken away due to a political war. Jocelyn Dupuis is a man of the people who has always put the workers rights in front of his own well-being, which is why his imprisonment has shaken him to the core.
Through this 6-episode mini-series, we will explore his great courage, his fight for justice as well as the pain and hardship of his downfall.
The project has the full support and participation of Jocelyn Dupuis, from whom Franky Films has been able to secure life rights (which includes the rights to use: Jocelyn Dupuis’ voice, likeness and image) as well as the rights to the book Syndicaliste ou Voyous?
Franky Films’ focus is attaching a daring and accomplished Quebec writer to the project. We have world-renowned distributor, Séville (eOne), interested in providing international distribution. We are garnering attention from multiple Quebec production houses interested in co-producing this very sought after socio-political scandal.
