Synopsis

Documentaire sur l'aventure méconnue de Revillon Frères, grande maison de fourrure parisienne qui s'est installée, au début du siècle, dans le Grand Nord canadien. Largement méconnue, la saga de Revillon est pourtant riche en révélations historiques. Qui sait que la maison comptait au pays 60 postes de traite de fourrures? qu’elle a financé le premier documentaire de l'histoire du cinéma, le célèbre Nanook of the North de Robert Flaherty? Entre les propos des rares témoins de cette histoire oubliée, des descendants de ses protagonistes et de chercheurs passionnés, un univers se recrée sous nos yeux à partir des traces les plus infimes de son existence.
