The Acadian Connection (Le Lien acadien)

Top of page

In this warm tribute to the spirit of l'Acadie, filmmaker Monique LeBlanc takes an affectionate look at ten members of the far-flung LeBlanc family--Acadians and Cajuns whose energy and joie de vivre speak of a legendary tenacity. From California to New Brunswick, from Ontario to Louisiana, Monique LeBlanc finds the dreams and determination of her ancestors living on in the hearts of her cousins, no matter where they make their homes.

The Acadian Connection (Le Lien acadien) is about the profound ties that bind family and culture in a world where so many people seek a sense of belonging. This film is certain to appeal to anyone who cares about family, history and identity, especially if they have an interest in Acadian or Cajun culture.
