Synopsis:
After a 30-year career as a singer and songwriter, Pierre Rapsat will forever be a major figure in French-language popular music in Belgium, part of our community’s cultural heritage. His songs are still regularly played on the radio, and his albums still sell steadily since his death. Many of his songs, such as «Ensemble» or «Tous les Rêves», have become “classics”. This film retraces his life and his career. It includes abundant archival footage (from 1973 to 2002, including some that has never been seen before) and a variety of testimonials that put the importance of this essential artist for our community in proper perspective. Structured  thematically as well as chronologically, this documentary highlights the quality of his work and the traits of this engaging and honest personality.
