What would it be like to live in true harmony with nature instead of living in opposition? A remarkably self-sufficient clan living in a beautiful patch of forest in Quebec’s Gaspé Peninsula, the Jacob-Mathar family has dedicated the last 15 years to finding that out, as captured in Queen’s University alumnus Laura Rietveld’s thoughtful documentary. The director deeply immerses viewers in the lives of Gérard Mathar and Catherine Jacob as they build future homes for their sons, not knowing whether their children will embrace the same commitment to caring for the Earth once they’re ready to start their own lives. Admirers of All the Time in the World (KCFF15) will be similarly engaged and inspired by this story of one family’s efforts to find harmony with their environment, a goal that includes no lack of sacrifice.
