A new documentary series takes viewers to some of the most beautiful and remote locations on earth and discusses the preservation efforts needed to fight climate change.

In the first episode, we travel to the Magdalen Islands in the Province of Québec. An archipelago with its red sandstone cliffs and white sand beaches, it is a paradise for photographers, seals and seabirds, which could disappear due to the consequences of global warming.

The Magdalen Islands consist of about 15 islands, eight of which are inhabited, and the majority connected by roads protected by sand dunes which prevent the waves from penetrating inland. Fragile dunes whose sand is increasingly washed away by the ocean waves. This archipelago located in the heart of the St. Lawrence is inhabited by nearly 13,000 inhabitants. 

The new documentary series is designed as an itinerant journey through strikingly beautiful countries, regions and territories. The series takes us to sometimes confidential destinations where climate and environmental disruption is already shaping the landscapes.

Thanks to numerous encounters, this program makes the voices of those who have become “guardians” of these places heard. Because they sometimes live on these lands in an ancestral way or bring them back to life by settling there. These testimonies as well as the choice to restore, in sequences and images, the beauty of the landscapes will make it possible to discover territories confronted with the reality of the climate crisis but which try to contain it and attenuate its consequences.

The experience and expertise of Chloé Nabédian make it possible to raise awareness among viewers with pedagogy and humanity.
