The Quiet Revolution

About this event

'The Quiet Revolution: State, Society and the Canadian Horror Film' is the new 96 minute documentary which considers how social, political and cultural tensions within differing Canadian territories have shaped national horror film traditions from the 1960s until the present day. The first part of the documentary considers the social transitions in 1960s and 1970s Quebecois culture that influenced a new range of controversial horror productions and subgenres pioneered by filmmakers such as David Cronenberg and William Fruet. The Quiet Revolution: State, Society and the Canadian Horror Film also considers the territorial shifts in horror cinema production from Quebec to other regions such as Toronto and Vancouver during the 1990s. The documentary concludes by profiling contemporary female directors such as the Soska Sisters, Nyla Innuksuk and Gigi Saul Guerrero, whose work challenge the boundaries of gender, sexuality and national identity in Canadian horror cinema.
