A documentary about a Quebec paper artist and TV host aims to charm you with its beauty and artistic spirit, and it may succeed whether you grew up watching his programs or not.

The Paper Man is a Canadian documentary film celebrating the life and work of Claude Lafortune, a paper artist who is well known to viewers of Québécois children’s television in the 1970s, ’80s and ’90s.

Spotlight producer Paul Larson discusses the film with its producer, Tanya Lapointe, who talks about the joys and challenges of creating the piece.

Spotlight is made possible, in part, by the Glenn and Carol Pearsall Adirondack Foundation, dedicated to improving the quality of life for year-round residents of the Adirondack Park.  Spotlight is also supported by Hill and Hollow Music.
