In October 1970, members of the Front de libération du Québec kidnapped minister Pierre Laporte, unleashing an unprecedented crisis in Quebec. Fifty years later, Félix Rose tries to understand what led his father and uncle to commit these acts.
The best film ever produced by the NFB. I'm reading Pierre Valliéres book. Essential reading for Canadians.

What did the FLQ think would happen if they kidnapped authority figures? Very scrambled thinking I feel. It's harder to organize the population to fight for justice, but it is what will win in the end.

Congratulations to the makers of this film! I did feel that they went too easy on the Industrial benefactors of the time. Romanizing a bit too much! I enjoyed it. Thank you!

im a canadian citizen living in South Australia for the next while. I would like to watch this documentary. As I recall I was 13 years old when all of this happened living in Calgary at the time. My father was horrified at the War Measures Act and I didn't fully understand back then.
