Family Spirits

Top of page

Family Spirits is a sort of road movie made by a three-generational family trying to trace their lineage from Quebec to the Maritimes. On their journey, a child, his mother and cousin meet distant cousins and their Acadian ancestors. Narrated by the child, the film is a tribute to the origins of the French-speaking communities in North America. Teachers can use the film, the film clips and bonus features on the DVD to spark a discussion on history.
