Director/Writer: Louise Archambault | 127-mins. | Canada | TRAILER

Drama.  Based on a book.  Acclaimed director, Louise Archambault’s melancholic and charming new film depicts three elderly hermits live deep in the woods, cut off from the rest of the world. While wildfires threaten the region, their quiet life is about to be shaken by the arrival of two women… A luminous octogenarian, unjustly institutionalized her whole life, and a young photographer charged with interviewing survivors of the region’s deadliest forest fire.  After the death of the eldest hermit, the two women make an astonishing discovery: hundreds of paintings echoing his tragic experience related to that devastating fire. A story of intertwined destinies, where love can happen at any age.

Based on the book by Jocelyne Saucier, AND THE BIRDS RAINED DOWN was a 2016 CBC Canada Reads selection and a Finalist for the 2013 Governor General’s Literary Award for French-to-English translation.
