AROUND NORTH AMERICA
Part 3 : Pacific Attitude
Master Pastelist CHRIS, teacher from the Société des Pastellistes de France, painted in his school of painting, in The Bazouge de Chéméré, in Mayenne, a painting of a still life composition, in an afternoon.
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.
An emergency accommodation centre for homeless people, located in the suburbs of Paris. Here, a dozen men, coming from all walks of life, isolated and left out by society, are spending winter in a small temporary community. I call them "The Hermits". By observing their lifestyle, their humanity and their struggle, one is faced with a puzzling reflection of the outside world: our world. With the return of spring, they all go back to the road and fade away into loneliness.
