The story of « Ilot Fleurie » is that of a little utopia from a popular district in Quebec City. It began in the mid-90s, when a huge wasteland and unsanitary prompted residents of the surrounding area to react. Abandoned, the land was taken over by horticulturalists and artists. In 2002, under the ramps of the Dufferin Montmorency Highway, a group of young artists and less young patenters continued to bring Ilot Fleurie to life. I made this film to pay tribute to all these artisans. Only available in french.
