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.
