Synopsis


Clean water, essential to all forms of life, is becoming increasingly rare. Like deforestation, the loss of clean water is a global tragedy. Following the international success of The Man Who Planted Trees, which won an Oscar and led to the planting of millions of trees, Frédéric Back decided to create a film about the St. Lawrence River. "Magtogoek," as it is called by the Mi'kmaq people, originates in the Great Lakes, follows a long course through Ontario and Quebec, and then drains into the Atlantic. Its waters, which once teemed with animal and plant life, today bear witness to decades of over-exploitation and industrial pollution. Alas, all the rivers of the world are suffering the same fate!
