About The Film

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.

Icon_SubmitYourStoryDid you or your family live in Quebec during the sixties and seventies? Did you choose to move because of what was happening in the province at the time? We’d love to hear your story and post it with others on the website.

 

  • "I felt that Rene Levesque in Quebec was trying to create, you know, a real society of social justice – and he sold me on that. I thought he was for real."

    Pierre Tetrault

  • "You have to understand that there is absolutely no relationship between French-Canadians and English-Canadians, to this day. So it is a community they don’t know. And they don’t care about them."

    Denys Arcand

  • "I identify as a Quebecer. I’m Quebecoise, that’s what I am. It’s where my family’s from, it’s where I feel I belong, and just because I grew up speaking English as a mother tongue doesn’t make me any less or give me any less sense of being a Quebecoise."
