Viewer Advisory: This film contains scenes of animal slaughter.
In a rural setting, the bleeding of a pig is depicted plainly, as an autumn ritual. A just and moving tribute to the handing down of actions that, shared across families and generations, also perpetuate true social solidarity.
This second edition was created in partnership with La bande Sonimage, a Saguenay-based organization that supports cinema and video production in the Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean region. All shot with Bolex digital cameras, these 5 fascinating shorts are both stunningly beautiful and retro-looking.
