Hébert explores this through a juxtaposition of reconfigured found footage from the 1930's and newly created Super 8 films that were inspired by those archival images. These non-linear short narratives are synchronized and edited in such a way that the stories respond to each other and are intended to be projected onto handmade screens. Both films are united by a single overarching soundtrack created from ambient audio gathered while shooting in Manitoba.  The Memory Stitch / Point de mémoire  explores the spirit of nostalgia, playfulness, and the “re-creation" of memory.
