The Big Cleanup - Denis Lepine's documentary
His home and studio aren't flooded - but he remembers very well his own brush with environmental disaster during the 1998 ice storm, how communities came together when faced with disaster.
That's why he's out there today filming the volunteers for his documentary S.O.S. Richelieu.
