Filmed in Mani-utenam, on the North Shore of Quebec and in the mid-Mauricie in 2020, the documentary chronicles the journey of musicians from different cultural background coming together to share a message of hope and to reflect about diversity, multiculturalism and the use of music as a tool for dialogue.
This is a compelling documentary with a big heart.
The filmmakers and the musicians travel with us through the North Shore of the St. Lawrence in Quebec and in the Mekinac region introducing us to the synthesis of their musical cultures. With their most inspiring music, we join them in their beautiful efforts to oppose racism and honour their diversity and our human bonds.
At the center of the film, the musicians meet with the children of Maliotenam and something magical happens. We see their natural curiosity, as the children and the musicians reach out to each other. The musical exchange, the people and the musicians are inspiring.
Through this documentary, we can see that we are all participants of the human journey.Dr. Laura Sky, documentary filmmaker
