Kevin Parent (born 12 December 1972) is a bilingual Québécois singer-songwriter. Although his first language is English, he was born in Greenfield Park, Quebec (now a borough of the city of Longueuil), and was raised and educated in the French-speaking area of Bay of Chaleur (Gaspé Peninsula) in the municipality of Nouvelle during his childhood and attended high school at the École Antoine-Bernard in Carleton-sur-Mer and now lives in the nearby town of Miguasha.

Discovered in 1993 when he participated in a songwriting competition, Kevin Parent signed to Tacca Musique shortly thereafter. His first album, "Pigeon d'argile" sold over 360,000 copies, making it one of the greatest Québécois successes of the decade. With hits like "Nomade sedentaire", "Seigneur" and "Boomerang", Kevin quickly became one of the biggest names in Quebec music in the 1990s, earning the respect of peers and critics alike, along with numerous Felix Awards in the province and tour dates on both sides of the Atlantic. Two years later, Kevin released "Grand Parleur, Petit Faiseur", which also sold more than 350,000 copies and earned Kevin the Felix Award for Rock Album of the Year in 1998. His follow up albums, Les Vents ont changé (2001) and Retrouvailles (2003), which featured collaborations with Claire Pelletier, Catherine Durand, among others, both achieved multi-platinum status and earned him numerous Juno Award nominations (including a win for the best selling Francophone album of 2002) and Felix Awards.

Parent has also worked as an actor, taking his first starring role in Jean-Marc Vallée's 2011 film Café de Flore.

Kevin Parent vit sur les rives de la Baie-des-Chaleurs, la terre de ses ancêtres, son havre de paix. Pourtant, sa tranquillité risque d’être troublée par la levée du moratoire québécois sur l’exploitation d’hydrocarbures dans les eaux du Golfe du Saint-Laurent : une porte grande ouverte pour envahir la baie de plateformes pétrolières et gazières. La peur d’une marée noire, des retombées économiques incertaines, des conflits d’intérêts apparents, Kevin Parent s’inquiète de l’avenir de son golfe. Afin de mieux comprendre des enjeux qui souvent le dépassent, il décide de partir à la rencontre des acteurs d’un conflit qui semble inévitable entre gouvernements, pétrolières, premières nations, environnementalistes et simples citoyens. Une version moderne de David et Goliath.

Inspector Hazel Micallef (Susan Sarandon) is a sheriff in the small Ontario town of Fort Dundas. She is called to check in on elderly Delia Chandler, and finds the woman nearly decapitated in her living room. Chandler's mouth is twisted as if she is screaming. The police encounter another gruesome murder where a man's stomach has been fed to some dogs. His face was also twisted into a scream. After a third murder, the police come to believe they are dealing with a serial killer. They discover that the mouths have been positioned to form the syllables of the word "libera".

Des jeunes provenant de partout au Québec viennent camper sur les lieux. Le jeune Bernard, fils de pêcheur des environs, s'intéresse au groupe malgré les réticences de sa fiancée Geneviève.

The film cuts between two seemingly unrelated stories. One, set in present-day Montreal, stars Kevin Parent as Antoine, a successful club DJ torn between his new girlfriend Rose (Évelyne Brochu) and his still-complicated relationship with his ex-wife Carole (Hélène Florent); the other, set in 1960s Paris, stars Vanessa Paradis as Jacqueline, the fiercely protective single mother of Laurent (Marin Gerrier), a child with Down syndrome who has a crush on Véro (Alice Dubois), a friend and companion who also has Down syndrome. The film builds toward the revelation of how the two stories are linked: after Jacqueline, Laurent, and Véro are killed in a car accident, Carole, Antoine, and Rose are their subsequent reincarnations.
