Night of the Flood

Night of the Flood is a Canadian drama film, directed by Bernar Hébert and released in 1996. An experiment in integrating dance and theatrical staging into cinema, the film tells the story of a child born in a flooded land; his mother (Geneviève Rochette) was the sole survivor of the flood after floating to safety on a raft built by the child's deceased father (Jacques Godin) and being cared for by a guardian angel (Julie McClemens). The film also prominently features the dance troupe O Vertigo, performing dances choreographed by Ginette Laurin.
