The Legend of the Flying Canoe (La Chasse-galerie)

The Legend of the Flying Canoe (La Chasse-galerie)

| 10 min

New Year's Eve, late 1800s. A group of loggers in an isolated lumber camp yearn to celebrate with their loved ones, but the river is frozen. If the men want to see their families, their only choice is to make a pact with the Devil to ride in a flying canoe. Original music and animation preserve the spirit of this Quebec legend.
