Regarded as the first great Quebecoise documentary, the film is one of Perrault and Brault’s major works. A dense anthropological portrait of a community of beluga fishers with a long tradition in the Île-aux-Coudres, and a reflexion on history.
Doclisboa wants to question the present of film, bringing along its history and assuming cinema as a mode of freedom. By refusing the categorization of film practice, it searches for the new problematics that cinematic image implies, in its multiple ways of engagement with the contemporary. Doclisboa tries to be a place to imagine reality through new modes of perception, reflection, and possible new forms of action.
