Snowbirds

Snowbirds

SNOWBIRDS is a short documentary that reaches out to golden age Canadians living in Florida during the winter season. This is the growing trend of an entire generation migrating to the tropics, seeking a leisure society that can entertain them. With tenderness and humor, this sociological documentary goes to the heart of their daily lives by painting a human portrait of this typically Canadian social phenomenon. Welcome to the French District of Florida, Snowbird’s paradise.
