The Point

This short documentary is a portrait of Point St. Charles, one of Montreal’s notoriously bleak neighbourhoods. Many of the residents are English-speaking and of Irish origin; many of them are also on welfare. Considered to be one of the toughest districts in all of Canada, Point St. Charles is poor in terms of community facilities, but still full of rich contrasts and high spirits – that is, most of the time.

    “Incredible. This is a perfect requiem for a lost neighbourhood. These communities simply do not exist any more. So many parallels to South Boston.” — PaulGoodwin, 10 Sep 2013
