Nicolas Landry, conteur

A poet of the sea, the wind and the far horizon, this young Madelinot storyteller spreads his nets in the memories of his ancestors, speaking in homage to their wisdom and their heritage. In the accents of his younger days, he takes us on a tour of a society poised precariously between the traditional and modern worlds. He illustrates the importance of traditions and the uniqueness of his people. His stories, profound, subtle and sensitively rendered, bring to life the legends of Island life... a magical visit to his own personal corner of paradise.
