New to our platforms: here are 12 upcoming documentaries or web series cover


The novelties fuse. You have to have eyes everywhere. On the various platforms, web series and documentaries are set up to reach the public. Projects undertaken in many cases, which make you think, impact. Others that make us laugh sometimes. Here are a few novelties that deserve our attention. 

Short-format fictions 


Season 1 of this touching, ultra-realistic series was inspired by the eponymous book by Anaïs Barbeau-Lavalette. We followed disadvantaged young people from the Saint-Michel district whose families are threatened with eviction. Director and co-screenwriter Eric Piccoli took the story further by reuniting with Eddy, Mélissa and Karine two years later. Their issues as teenagers are different, their situation is always precarious. They lose their footing. A shooting breaks out in the neighborhood, which makes Eddy's mother and Karine's father feel insecure as they try to get their lives back together. Mélissa's mother is facing health problems while the DPJ has placed her children. Always so authentic.

This Manitoba web series that echoes the news is a story of siblings despite the differences. Jonathan is a comedian, but his homophobic jokes have crossed the line. It is “cancelled”. The death of his mother forces him to reconnect with his brother Thomas who is homosexual and whom he has always believed to be the favorite. Her mother insisted that they do everything together after she left, which will force them to get to know each other better and realize that everyone is important in her heart.

A crazy web series in which Ariel Charest, comedian and comedian who has made a name for herself on the web thanks to her delirious dubbing, parodies the codes of true crime series. As she says, a good investigative reporter has to be prepared to get their hands dirty. She lends her features to her alter ego, Hariel Cherast, who must solve significant facts of popular culture with his acolytes Siméon and Pascaline. It is therefore a question of the intrusion of the wild turkey into a lady's living room as well as the woke movement at the National Assembly or even a memorable performance at Soirée canadienne, of the famous birdy by Carl Carmoni when describing the games of miniputt or the frog found in the pepper as mysterious as the caramel in the Caramilk.
