Martin Stone and his two daughters, Deborah and Jacqueline, lived the hippy life intensely for six years. The experience changed them forever.

Stone Story- Jean-André FourestiéJean-André Fourestié
Director, Writer

Born in Bordeaux, Jean-André Fourestié moved to Montreal in 2004, where he pursues his passion for editing and directing documentaries. The self-taught filmmaker’s debut, ÉLECTION, depicted the night of the 2004 American Presidential election. Also a musician, Fourestié then made a second documentary, 2006’s CONSTRUCTIONS, about the music creation process of Montreal jazz trumpeter Jacques Kuba Séguin as he recorded his first album. Always interested in people’s journeys, life choices and yearnings for freedom, he codirected 2011’s GOSPEL ACCORDING TO VIVIENNE with Bruno Pucella. That documentary was selected by several North American festivals and won the 2012 Spirit of Queens Award 2012 at the Queens World Film Festival. STONE STORY is Fourestié’s first feature-length documentary.

Jean-André also works as an editor. From 2007 to 2010, he was a director-editor for TV5 Québec Canada. He’s currently a freelance editor for television projects and independent productions. In 2013, he was nominated for a Prix Gémeaux in the Best Editing of a Documentary Series category for Arnaud Bouquet’s VOYAGES AU BOUT DE LA NUIT.
