The Ahiarmiut: Out-of-the-Way Dwellers

Rural Route Communications is pleased to announce that Louise Abbott was chosen as one of five Canadian filmmakers for the Tell Our Stories project of Friends of Canadian Broadcasting. Her mini documentary The Ahiarmiut: Out-of-the-Way Dwellers is now online:

Our thanks to all those who contributed to the film and to Friends of Canadian Broadcasting for co-producing it.

Friends of Canadian Broadcasting launched Tell Our Stories out of concern that Canadian stories are in danger of disappearing as Canadian newspapers and broadcasters shut down operations, and more and more people turn to online services like Netflix and Disney+, where Canadian stories are few and far between.

Friends commissioned the five documentaries "to show that there are thousands more Canadian stories out there just waiting to be told."

These two bridges are the only covered bridges that cross a lake in Quebec.

Creative Expression

E-mail Print PDF

As a documentary photographer, Louise Abbott has had the pleasure of visiting other artists in different parts of the world. In addition to producing portraits of them, she has captured details of them at work—details that reflect the artists and their desire, indeed need, for creative expression. She continues to work gradually on her series and shows images from it at intervals at Studio Georgeville in Georgeville, Quebec.
