Phantoms of the French Shore is a documentary that tells the epic and moving story of the creation of a work of art. Inspired by the famous eleventh-century Bayeux Tapestry, Phantoms of the French Shore invites us on a journey through the centuries and examines the French presence in Newfoundland. The documentary tells the story of the figures on the tapestry: Vikings, French fishermen, English pirates, naval battles between the French and British empires, tragic or triumphal epics, and heartbreaking tales of loss or love. But it is also the story of a fascinating human and artistic adventure and of an exceptional encounter, focusing on the creation and production of the tapestry, which brought together the painter Jean-Claude Roy and the embroiderers of Conche, a small village on the French Shore, Newfoundland.
The documentary Phantoms of the French Shore was co-produced and co-written by Barbara Doran and Jerry McIntosh, and directed by Barbara Doran in 2012.
