We Walked on the Moon

Canada, 1991 (MIFF 1992, Fiction)

Director: Johanne Pregent

July 20th, 1969. The entire planet is fixed on the Apollo XI. This is an accepted story, but there are lesser known details of July 20th, 1969, which no-one has ever talked about: the story of Marie-Andree Chevalier. First contraceptive pill, first night out with a boy. Ifs bye-bye childhood and Marie-Andree's first steps into this next episode of her life are remarkably light — almost weightless.
