St. Henri, the 26th of August 2011

On August 26th, 2010, fourteen filmmakers followed multiple stories in the Montreal neighbourhood of St-Henri. The result is a touching, funny and fascinating day-in-the-life of this eclectic community. Doris travels the streets collecting bottles; Belinda is a hair-stylist from Togo; Babyface, the 15 year old Canadian featherweight boxing champion prepares for a match; Robert and Edmee enjoy their golden years together; Danielle, an urban explorer, scales abandoned buildings and descends into St-Henri's sewers. 'St Henri, the 26th of August' is a film that asks what community means today, and how we inhabit our neighborhoods. Inspired by the 1962 ONF film, 'A St-Henri, le 5 septembre', this unique collaborative film brings together some of the brightest filmmakers in the contemporary Montreal documentary community.
