Port d'attache Laurence Lévesque

Homeport

Samuel lives in Saint-Maxime-du-Mont-Louis, in Gaspésie. Unlike many of his peers, leaving the region in droves to find work, he is deeply rooted in his village and has only one dream: to buy a fishing boat from Clément, who’s about to retire. Filmed with a strong sense of observation and composition, Port d’attache follows Samuel through his struggles with red tape, and pays touching tribute to those who defy the odds to keep their communities going, and who continue to believe in the value of a culture and occupation at risk of dying out. A film in the finest Québécois documentary tradition.
