This is a very rare piece of work : a documentary that really moves people's hearts and make rough waves throug our politicians. Is it about Quebec only? Not really. It concerns everybody. The massacree of the forest of Quebec's north is the subject of this film, but it goes beyond that : it's
that political blindness, sold to the big money makers that's in cause. I'm not really an ecologist, but I was angry when I saw some of the images of the film, and hear what Desjardins had to say about these politicians and big money makers (most of them Americans). Who runs this planet? 40 guys who had all the money? Killing the forest that way it's just horrible! So that's why I think everybody should see this film. You'll be angry too and that's really rare that a documentary movie goes to that point (Roger & me did that, but not as far as this one). Director Richard Desjardins is a poet and singer, and it's also rare that a man of words, a true artist, takes risks for that kind of issues.
