About The Poster: The history of cinema in Quebec started on June 27, 1896 when the French Louis Minier inaugurated the first movie projection in North America in a Montreal theatre room. However, it would have to wait until the 1960s before a genuine Quebec cinema industry would emerge. Due to language and cultural differences between the predominantly francophone population of Quebec and the predominantly anglophone population of the rest of Canada, Quebec's film industry is commonly regarded as a distinct entity from its English Canadian counterpart. For most of the 1960s, Quebec films were about the country. This poster was in the private collection of a noted jazz musician and producer and is only one of hundreds which we have just received. The Fugue en Mort Mineur poster measures 22 x 17.
