The Eyebrow, by Etienne Beaudry Souci | Creation Prize

who am I?

When I left CEGEP, I began studying physical therapy, which I did not finish because it did not satisfy my need to write. I now hold BA and MA degrees in Sociology, both from Laval University. I have written a novel that is supposed to be published next year by Semaphore Editions.

the future It takes place in a futuristic world where a Quebec company has marketed a device that allows people to see their future. Oddly enough, the device only allows access to completely unimportant details.

My inspiration for this text

During happy times with friends I haven’t known for a long time, I would sometimes ask them to imagine their reaction if, a few years ago, when we didn’t even know we existed, they were shown a movie of that future moment. I was fascinated by the previously unanticipated nature of the possibility of such strong complicity. It was this memory that inspired the future.

The first lines of my short story
