Cinémathèque québécoise Book

The economic crisis, the struggle for survival and power, endless backbreaking labour, debt and financial distress, inhospitable lands… It was 1959 and that is what Bernard Devlin was filming in this adaptation of a novel by Hervé Biron. Through the film we spend three years with a group of settlers who’ve come to Abitibi to found a parish. A paean to resilience, solidarity and the virtues of Quebec folklore, with an unforgettable performance by Félix Leclerc. This magnificent restored print will be equally enjoyable for long-time fans and first-time viewers.
