Kif-Kif is the story of four girls and four boys in the second last year of high school who share the only mixed lodgings in their school residence. We witness their unusual experiences, the bonds of love and friendship they develop, the mistakes and mischief they reap and the inanity of their communal circumstances. In short, Kif-Kif relates the genesis of a band of fast friends for whom the time spent at Des Sables High School will always figure among the best days of their lives.
The Web feature of Kif-Kif expands on the television drama and offers privileged access to the desktop computers of the eight main characters in the series. Web users can therefore delve into their blogs, files, videos, games or intimate thoughts. In short, the Web feature of Kif-Kif will become a place for teenagers to gather and interact, as it is developed in their own image and thanks to their contributions.

“Les Citadins du rebut global” is a documentary that centres on an astonishing experiment: can 5 volunteers use nothing but salvaged materials to breathe life back into an abandoned building located in the very heart of Montreal? 13 weeks, $15,000, only 1 gas tank for the whole adventure, 1 container for their construction waste…that’s all they have to win their bet. As we follow the participants on their treasure hunt, the series underlines all that can be accomplished by being creative and by getting around our traditional consumption circuits, while presenting a mosaic of the most environmentally innovating cities in North America and Europe.
The Website grew naturally from ideas developed in the series – our aim is to address sustainable development issues in a positive, hands-on manner. In one section, we learn how to apply simple environment-friendly solutions. In another, we learn of ways to breathe life back into old, discarded things. In yet another, we can unearth treasures discarded by a neighbour. A forum for people who care about recycling, salvaging, and sustainable development, the site is simply a mine of useful resources. It invites viewers to become citizens of a new, greener world, by taking an active part in bringing about change. For every contribution is important to the ecological balance of our planet!
