Manicouagan : 210 million years of astronomical, environmental and historic upheaval

225 million years ago, a meteorite carved out the unique landscape of Nitassinan. In the late 1960s, the Manic-5 hydroelectric dam completed the geography of the Innu territory, although they were unaware of this pharaonic construction. The supernatural modeling of these lands destroyed the nomadic culture of the Innu who roamed this area.

Rowing across a river turned inland sea, five adventurers check the pulse of the landscape as they expose themselves to the elements. Intoxicated by the power of nature, they travel on water and land through a hostile territory where animals are scarce, but where surprising, luxuriant vegetation abounds, dominated by windthrow. Through scientific surveys, sampling and drone flights, the interdisciplinary Manicouagan team, led by an Innu guide, aims to reach Mount Babel, the epicentre of the crater, in order to map the territory and its components. Will they succeed?
