Director: Joannie Lafrenière

Snowbirds is a documentary that reaches out to golden age Canadians living in Florida during the winter season. This is the growing trend of an entire generation migrating to the tropics each year, seeking a leisure society that can entertain them. With tenderness and humour, this sociological film goes to the heart of their daily lives by painting a human portrait of this typically Canadian social phenomenon. Welcome to the French District of Florida, Snowbird’s paradise.

This film is part of a combined programme with: Tears need rest, The sisters and That joke isn’t funny anymore. These four films take the viewer on a marvellous journey through the ups and downs in life, always destined to be filled with both tears and laughter.
