Trouver le Nord

Available on Vrai

An adventurer has made a fascinating life for himself and his family in Iqaluit. Against the backdrop of unique landscapes, the series presents a tightly woven community of humans who together go through the challenges of living their daily lives in the Far North. The extreme temperatures, the barren landscapes, the annual resupply, the dog sledding trips all exemplify what Benoît and his friends have chosen, a way of living more simply, of getting closer to the essentials.
