Morning on the Lievre

Canada, 1961 (MIFF 1962)

Director: David Bairstow

The Lievre river country of south-western Quebec seen today as the poet Archibald Lampman described it before the turn of the century. The misty river and the wooded hills in the early morning sun¬light have a lyric quality which fully harmonises with the descriptive beauty of the verse.
