Ça Tourne Productions

We are passionate about film, television and digital media in its many forms. The author’s perspective is paramount in both our fictional and documentary work. We seek to create works with a social conscience that are both audacious and entertaining, and striking in their treatment of topics and visual portrayal. Our mission is to make films that are meaningful both for our region and for the rest of the world.

Les Foley (in development)

The Foleys is a six-episode miniseries that tells the story of Laura Dewey-Foley, a forty-two-year-old biologist who works at the University of Toronto Research Institute. Following the death of her mother and serious professional misconduct, she voluntarily goes into exile on the island of Miscou, in eastern Canada to work. This island is not trivial in the history of Laura since her mother, Evelyne Foley, was born there. Miscou is a wild territory, populated by a handful of singular islanders, who live with their own codes and that Laura will upset by conducting a disturbing investigation into her origins. While carrying out her research, Laura did not expect to understand herself better and even less to reconnect with her daughter, Emma who at the age of ten chose to live with her father in a large city of Europe following her parents’ divorce.
