This docufantasia blends original footage with found footage to craft an incomplete and mostly false history of the city of Moncton. Commissioned to commemorate the 125th anniversary of the city, the filmmaker chose to question this colonial milestone, by going back much further than 125 years. She uses mythical and historical narratives from the English, Acadian and Mi’kmaq communities as starting points from which the absurd, the fantastic, and the completely fabricated stories rise and fall, and rise and fall, like the tides of the Petitcodiac.
