Le chant de la forêt

Le chant de la forêt

| 1 h 28 min

Ce long métrage documentaire de Bill Mason témoigne de son affection pour le loup du Canada et le loup arctique blanc. Si les légendes sur les loups mangeurs-d’ hommes abondent, peu d'humains ont réellement vu un loup à l'état sauvage. Le cinéaste est allé camper seul, au risque de sa vie, dans les endroits les plus reculés du Grand Nord et a rapporté ce document exceptionnel qui risque de détruire à jamais quelques mythes sur le loup.
