Title year:1970
Also known as:QUEBEC: DUPLESSIS AND AFTER … (English)
Original dialogue(s):French
Running time:114 min 32 sec
Description:This film establishes a parallel between the 1970 electoral campaign in Québec and the 1936 campaign dominated by Maurice Duplessis. Using skillfully-edited live footage and historical documents such as ‘‘Le Catéchisme des électeurs’’ and the Durham Report, the filmmaker examines the light of hope that appeared in the 1970 provincial elections, asking the question: Had the Quiet Revolution really changed things in Québec? Was it possible that a new leader would emerge on the political scene?
