The much-discussed documentary From Sherbrooke To Brooks – Inside a Migration Corridor, directed by Roger Parent, is now available online.

 

The movie, free of charge at NFB.ca: https://www.nfb.ca/film/from_sherbrooke_to_brooks/
 
This documentary travels the migration corridor forged between Sherbrooke, Quebec, and the city of Brooks, by French-speaking Africans. Most have come from the Democratic Republic of Congo, some by way of refugee camps in Uganda and Tanzania. Unable to find employment in Quebec, they travelled out West. An interweaving of personal stories and the filmmaker’s own trips back and forth through the corridor offer an honest look at how much work is yet to be done to successfully integrate these newcomers.
