AROUND NORTH AMERICA
Part 2 : Total Meltdown
Between the Caribbean sea and the Maya Mountains lies Toledo, known as
The Forgotten District of Belize, Central America.
For the last 20 years, the Maya have been promoting their own ecotourism programme in order to protect their rainforest and traditions. Despite constant opposition from the government and the tourist industry, Margarita, Reyes, Chet and their friends remain strong and optimistic. This film is a tribute to their tireless efforts.
Quebec, Canada. At the summer solstice, a group of young Aboriginals from the Innu and Huron nations and young Quebecers travels the Jesuits’ ancestral trail, 310 km of land and water which links Lac Saint-Jean and Quebec City.
Some embark on this 21-day long adventure to follow their ancestors’ trail, others for a unique experience with nature or as a personal challenge. One thing is certain; from laughter to silence, with stories and moments of introspection, a simple encounter turns into a profound learning experience.
