My Heart Palpitates

Percé is a small city near the tip of the Gaspé Peninsula in Quebec, Canada.


My heart palpitate is a meditative look of home and family in relationship to landscape.  It is filmed on expired film ends, without any effects and features one young character. The film has no dialogue and travels from Grandes-Bergeronnes to Bonventure to Percé QC, capturing gentleness and grandeur.









Sam Stefan teaches his family how to make sausages from scratch.
