This video chronicles a visit to l’Île aux Grues and its inhabitants. Frozen images seem like postcards of the island : arriving by boat; travelling the roads; visiting the homes. The ferry captain talks about his work and the hunting guide talks to the travellers about the tradition of hunting young geese. Another local talks about the legends and customs of the island. Images of life on the island round out this travelogue.
