Exploring Nature - Nov 12 to Nov 18

À perte de vue Marie-Chloé Racine, Sarah Salem

Films A to Z

Vanishing Point

Year after year, the cliffs and dunes of the Magdalen Islands erode, battered by storms and the rising sea level. Filmmakers Marie-Chloé Racine and Sarah Salem show us breathtaking landscapes that, despite a scale that makes them seem eternal, are at risk of vanishing. The directors of this sensitive documentary had the excellent idea of listening to young people who are deeply worried by the threat of climate change. In the form of letters read in voiceover, Édouard, Julia and Yvon-Gabriel talk about “their” islands, and share their thoughts, worries and love for this extraordinary place. The result is a film that makes the crisis real – a much more immediate crisis than we want to believe, and no country will be spared. (Apolline Caron-Ottavi)
