Québékoisie: journey on Route 138

Filmmakers Olivier Higgins and Mélanie Carrier travelled the world together. They made a point of meeting local indigenous peoples wherever they went but one day they realized they didn't know anywhere near as much about Quebec's own First Nations. 

They set out to change that. Olivier and Mélanie made a documentary about that journey of discovery called "Québékoisie". The film recently won the Magnus Isaacson award at the RIDM documentary festival, an award for work with exceptional social consciousness. 

It's playing in Quebec City now, and Montreal is to come in January, with stops in Rimouski and Trois Rivieres.  Mélanie Carrier and Olivier Higgins, spoke to Sonali Karnick on All In A Weekend.
