À l'ombre

Life in the shadow of the great dams.

Radisson and Chisasibi, two communities in the heart of the Quebec taiga, developed in the shadow of the massive James Bay hydroelectric project. Once construction was finished, many of the workers went back home, but a few hardy souls decided to stay.

While the people of Radisson find innovative ways to put down roots in this vast land, the Crees of Chisasibi strive to maintain their traditions and pass them on to the younger generation, who are attracted to the ease of modern life. Living in this remote region requires imagination and solidarity. And the lure of the South is strong.

Distribution: Les films Séville.
