The Film  Project

The landscape ofMontrealis changing: the Irish families are gone from Griffintown, developers have moved in. How can we retain a positive connection with our past?  We can preserve how the neighborhood looks now on film, before it changes forever.

 

That’s what we plan to do; we want to retain an image and an atmosphere of importance, and to tell a story of hope. Through story we can sometimes heal old wounds without losing touch with the past; through story we can move forward, and live in the hopes of our children and the future they bring.
