When travelling through the winding country roads in Quebec one can often stumble on the most phenomenal works of architecture and installations, an entirely unexpected world of surprising density and originality. These curiously odd constructions are the works of those who have had no artistic education yet are instinctively drawn to create.
Something like Immortality presents the works and daily life of three artists and their family. Often confronted by criticism by their peers and neighbours, they must face the sad inevitable reality of living apart from a society that discludes them. They will be discovered late in their careers but will eventually receive the recognition and credibility they deserve.
