A group of Acadians from Belle-Île-en-Mer in France travels to Canada to meet their “cousins” at the World Acadian Congress. They explore the homelands of their Acadian ancestors deported by the British and vibrate to the festivities of the international gathering. This film is a tribute to the identity attachment of a dispersed people who are still proud of their origins.
Belle-Île en Acadie by Acadian director Phil Comeau has been honoured in festivals with 98 awards and prizes in Canada and around the world.

“Pour mieux t’aimer” tells the story of a family whose mother disappeared 30 years ago without a trace. Her husband and two sons have reconstructed a semblance of life as they could, haunted by this ghost and tortured by questioning. When a young stranger arrives to bring them what seem to be the missing pieces of their story, everyone has to face their demons, which are not the ones we think they are.
