Stone Makers

Stone Makers

| 5 min

A routine workday in a granite quarry turns surreptitiously into a captivating industrial symphony. While men work in the background, different equipment and machines perform for the camera as if they are individual dancers in a contemporary ballet.

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.
