Mathieu Collette, the latest in a long line of blacksmiths, carries on his work with impressive dedication. After transforming an abandoned heritage building into an internationally acclaimed training space, he is threatened with eviction. Filmed over several years and documenting the captivating story of a real-life hero and the obstacles he must overcome, Olivier D. Asselin’s documentary is a determined, lyrical reflection on issues related to memory. Driven by a passion as irrepressible as his protagonist’s, the director underscores the value of a nearly vanished profession that he refuses to see die out.
