Dans ce court métrage documentaire, les univers opposés des pêcheurs sur glace de Rimouski et de l’artiste français Joseph Kieffer se rencontrent. L’artiste leur propose un marché propre au partage : une de leur histoire en échange d’une girouette créée sur mesure pour leurs cabanes de pêche.

Joseph Kieffer wants to turn stories and “drawings into objects” (10:45). While the fishermen participate, they are unsure how to receive his work. Ask students to consider the two men (21:50 and 24:30) who take great pride in their own handiness, as well as the comments (14:00) about how someone with a “different character” will be able to recreate their stories. What can be observed about community and tradition from these statements?
