MEMORIES OF THE COTE
« Aging is still the only way we have found
to live a long time.»
For the Memories of the Côte project, we wanted to ask the seniors of the region to share their experiences on the Côte-de-Beaupré with us.
Why meet our seniors? Because they are here, because they have hindsight, wisdom, freedom of speech and an awareness of time passing ... Their lives are enmeshed with the Côte, they saw it change, saw it evolve!
When we think of the heritage of the Côte-de-Beaupré, we think of its breathtaking landscapes, its built heritage, its ancestral homes, religious, and agricultural heritage, the river and the maritime heritage attached to it . But behind the walls of these houses, behind all these material riches, behind the visible history, there are people who brought life to this beautiful Côte-de-Beaupré ... People who have made the Côte what it is today. It is those people who are here to speak to you.
In all, 30 interviews were conducted with seniors of the region, 12 of which were filmed. Each in their own way, they made us discover their trades, their activities, their daily lives and their future aspirations. We wanted to know and bring out what they like about their region, what drives them, what makes them proud.
Each of these stories is unique and presents the specificjourney of these citizens. It includes joys, sorrows and high points. Memories of the Côte takes us to the heart of the living and intangible heritage of the Côte-de-Beaupré.
