Seconde nature

Québec (Canada)

This new sound documentary series explores the links between nature, urbanity and identity. Intimate encounters with the voices of those less heard on the subject: queer, racialized and First Nations people. Director Mathilde Benignus went to speak with people who all share a certain form of resilience. They cultivate a special relationship with the plant world, a poetic and militant alliance, while living in the great urban center that is Montreal. By questioning our relationship with nature, this documentary series offers a journey into intimacy and resistance, into the heart of us. Tender and enlightening.


After the listening session, the audience is invited to take part in a discussion with Soleil Launière, a protagonist, and Mathilde Benignus, the director.
