MONTREAL – author and professor Yves Rise up, who had lifted the veil on the inclinations pedophiles Claude Jutra in a biography of the filmmaker published in 2016, passed away Tuesday, announced its sister Noëlla, Wednesday.
He was an old man of 78 years old.
“It is with immense sorrow that I announce to you the death of my brother Yves in the evening yesterday. He who breathed the health and the best physical shape, his heart has decided to finish his journey,” wrote mrs. Sunrise on Facebook.
A native of Marsoui, in Gaspésie, Yves Rise was recognized as a scholar and critic emeritus of the quebec cinema. He has published a number of books on the subject, including “Cinema and quebec society”, “general History of cinema in Quebec”, “100 quebec films that we must see”, “Dictionary of censorship in Québec : literature and cinema” and “J. A DeSève, diffuser images”.
It has also taught her discipline of choice in many institutions in Montreal and Quebec city, including Cegep Ahuntsic, Collège Brébeuf, Université de Montréal, Université Laval, and Winnipeg.
Although his legacy to the quebec culture is important, it is especially his biography of Claude Jutra, launched in 2016 by Éditions du Boréal, which has made his name known to the general public. Yves Up there dropped a small bomb, by asserting that the Jutra had once had intimate relationships with young boys, tweens and teens.
Even if they held only a few lines of his book on the famous filmmaker, the revelations of Lift on Jutra, have caused a true uproar. The victims are then made manifest. Public places hitherto named in memory of Claude Jutra award has been renamed in the wake, and the gala dedicated to the seventh art in quebec, formerly called the Gala of Jutra, also changed his name. The event is called now Gala Quebec Cinema, and provides trophies Iris.
