Quebec My Country Mon Pays

 A documentary by John Walker

Thursday, November 10, 7 pm. Buchanan A 101

 

Quebec My Country Mon Pays charts the aftermath of Quebec’s Quiet Revolution in the 1960s. This social justice movement unleashed dramatic cultural and political changes that led to the separatist movement, the FLQ terrorist crisis and, ultimately, the exodus of more than 500,000 English-speaking Quebecers. Montreal-born filmmaker John Walker reveals his own complicated relationship with the province in a film brimming with love and longing.

John Walker is one of Canada’s most prolific documentary filmmakers. His films, which are personal, lyrical and express a deep understanding of the human condition, have won international acclaim and appeared at major film festivals from Toronto to Tokyo. A co-founder of DOC (Documentary Organization of Canada), his credits include The Fairy Faith, A Drummer’s Dream, Men of the Deeps, Passage, and Arctic Defenders.
