Une promenade dans la communauté portugaise montréalaise traitant particulièrement de l'isolement linguistique et culturel des personnes âgées portugaises.
Le vidéo vise, à travers des entrevues et par le biais de textes poétiques, à faire sentir la douleur du déracinement et de la solitude. En décrivant les causes de cette souffrance et en suggérant l'activité au sein de la communauté portugaise,
Arrimage est aussi un outil pour les intervenants sociaux et les groupes communautaires pour l'intégration sociale des personnes âgées.

This revelattory stroll through Montreal's Portuguese community pays particular attention to the linguistic and cultural isolation of its elderly members. Employing interviews and poetry, the video communicates their sense of displacement and the pain of loneliness. In describing the roots of their anguish, and in suggesting activities within the Portuguese community.
Arrimage means to assist social workers and community groups in the integration of elderly citizens.
