2012/Throught the Heart

Using footage from both amateur and professional sources, 2012/Throught the Heart immerses us into the intensity of the demonstrations and riots of the 2012 student strike. 

SYNOPSIS

Using footage from both amateur and professional sources, 2012/Throught the Heart immerses us into the intensity of the demonstrations and riots of the 2012 student strike. While the film confronts us with the brutality of the police, it also recalls the power of this historic moment that shook the political and media powers in Quebec. Accompanied by an uncompromising narration voiced by Safia Nolin, this work rekindles the flame that marked an entire generation, and asks what remains, ten years on, of that dazzling spring.
