Ce court métrage de la série documentaire Au beau milieu de la plaine présente la perspective des Fransaskois (habitants de langue française de la Saskatchewan) sur les défis et sur l’avenir de leur singulière culture des Prairies. Si la population du sud des Prairies est très majoritairement anglophone, de petites communautés rurales francophones dynamiques et fortes persistent, disséminées dans cette vaste zone. Parmi celles-ci, Gravelbourg est considérée comme le cœur de la langue et de la culture françaises de la région.

Ages 12 to 18

A short documentary from The Grasslands Project featuring the francophone town of Gravelbourg, considered the centre of French language and culture in the region. Ideal for discussions, essays or research projects about French-speaking Canadian communities outside of Quebec. Did you know there were francophone communities in Saskatchewan? What provinces other than Quebec have francophone communities? What are some of the challenges identified in the film in sustaining a French language and culture outside of Quebec? What is the community of Gravelbourg doing to ensure francophone culture thrives for future generations?
