Borges, Les

60 minutes, 1977

This film examines the community of approximately 30 000 Portuguese people living in Montréal, with a particular focus on Manuel Borges’ family, who arrived in Québec in 1967. The film shows, with grace and sensitivity, the problems faced by immigrants and how they learn to live in a new country that they want to make their home.
