Opening film

A public housing development in Montreal’s Saint-Michel district. Intended as a counterpoint to the many (un)intentionally reductive reports about the infamous neighbourhood, this new film by Pascal Sanchez (La reine malade, RIDM 2010) is a long-term project, a proud example of a patient, humanist documentary tradition capable of revealing the essence of a place and its people. Filmed over the course of a year, Les vaillants is an immersion in a complex community as it copes with the daily challenges encountered by the volunteers and workers in its local associations. Full of funny, touching characters, the film is a lively salute to the people hard at work in the shadows, fighting every day to change lives for the better.
