Carricks

Carricks… In the wake of the Irish

In 1847 the Carricks sinks off the coast of the Gaspé Peninsula. The ship was carrying 187 Irish passengers and… a violin marked “Stradivarius”. Now, the bones of lost children come to light, appearing like ghosts on the Cap-des-Rosiers Beach – but to whom do they belong? This film looks at the identity of the Quebec people, from the name of an immigrant family, to the identity of deceased children, or the origin… of a violin.
