BELLE-ILE IN ACADIE

BELLE-ILE IN ACADIE

directed by:

Phil Comeau

A group of Acadians from Belle-Ile-en-Mer, France, travel to eastern Canada to visit their “cousins” with whom they share a common history. They are descendants of the deported Acadians by the British from their Nova Scotia homeland. They come to meet other relatives at a World Acadian Congress and see their ancestor's lost “Acadie”. Face to face with their brutal history, will they be able to forgive? This film is about exile, the power of memory and finding your roots.
