Lower North Shore documentary coming to Sherbrooke

By Gordon Lambie

Sherbrooke’s Maison du Cinema will host two special screenings this coming week of A Place of Tide and Time, a documentary by Montreal-based documentary filmmakers Aude Leroux-Lévesque et Sébastien Rist about the life of a family on Quebec’s Lower North Shore. Although focused on the challenges facing one graduating student and his family in the context of big decisions about identity, opportunity and happiness, the filmmakers describe their film as an exploration of issues that are becoming more and more universal. “It’s a very local story, but at the same time these are issues that are happening across the world,” said Rist, explaining that much of the film takes place in the community of Saint Paul’s River. The filmmaker said that his relationship with the region dates back to 2012, when he and Leroux-Lévesque travelled north as a part of a program to give video workshops to English minority communities. “We’d never travelled in that region and it was really fascinating when we arrived,” he said.
