Man Who Chooses the Bush

This short documentary follows Frank Ladouceur, a man who lives alone for months at a time, trapping muskrat in the vast, desolate wilderness of northern Alberta. He receives no visitors, and rarely voyages to his family home in Fort Chipewyan. What some may consider an unthinkably lonely, isolated existence is the calling of this fiercely independent M├ętis man. Remarkably determined and self-sufficient, Frank makes his home in the wild bush.

This film contains scenes of violence. Viewer discretion is advised.

    “Very interesting to see a way of life on the edge of so called civilisation. I wonder what it's like out there today. What has been lost, what gained? ” — MCC, 5 Aug 2015
