Speak White

Famous 1980 short tract, shot in 16mm by Pierre Falardeau and Julien Poulin on a 1968 poem by Michèle Lalonde. Many times rewarded in filmfests, here and abroad. One of the strongest pamphlets ever made for film against colonialism and in favor of democracy and the right of nations to self-determination. Falardeau and Poulin have a keen eye for stylish, provocative, dynamic editing. Marie Eykel’s reading is perfect-pitched and respectful of the poem’s nuances and shades. Here is an example of socially constructive propaganda… for a change. Bravissimo You may turn English captions on by means of CC button, at lower right corner of screen.
