Blacksmith Mathieu Collette is internationally renowned in his field, an expert in a profession passed down through generations. An ardent supporter of his craft—an invaluable part of our cultural heritage—Mathieu has poured his body and soul into founding Les Forges de Montréal, an organization housed in a historic Griffintown building owned by the city. Shot over several years, this documentary recounts a passionate and exuberant man’s fight to preserve the blacksmith’s legacy, as well as his building, considered to be the last remaining blacksmithy in Canada.
