The Lumberfros

.

In Abitibi, hundreds of kilometres from the city, thousands of workers go up North, as did Jos Montferrand and François Paradis. Working as brush cutters, these 21st-century lumberjacks discover Quebec’s boreal forest. Far from their families, they spend five or six months a year in logging camps that mirror a new Quebec. Quebecers of French-Canadian descent and Neo-Quebecers from Africa, Eastern Europe and Asia work side by side. All have come to earn a living in the forest. Filmmaker Stéphanie Lanthier invites us to spend an entire season inside this northern micro society.
