Festival starts in


On October 26, 2012, a red dust covered the neighborhood of Limoilou in Québec City near the Port of Québec and contained iron oxide, nickel, zinc, arsenic and other heavy metals. Véronique Lalande lives there with her one-year-old son and her husband and is determined to fight for a healthy environment for her family.

French with English subtitles.

Directors' Biographies:

The Seaborn Brothers made their debut in social documentary films in the years 2000. Using direct cinema, they create a powerful link to their protagonists, which gives birth to boundless images and testimony. Through cinema, they support social causes. They highlight outstanding people that leave their mark on Québec. They showed the daily life of drug addicts in the film Pas de piquerie dans mon quartier broadcasted on Télé-Québec in January 2012. They also developed a solid experience in postproduction as they directed around 40 documentaries and a dozen of documentary series for television. From 2013 to 2016, they followed Véronique Lalande’s citizen’s initiative against heavy metals dusts from the Port de Québec. With support of the SODEC, Bras de fer is the logical result of the brothers’ work, a committed, emotional and truthful cinema.
