research and other wanderings - see my website! There are comics and a store and everything: Hark! A Vagrant

This documentary is so good, it’s SO GOOD. I’ll let the description speak for itself:

Part one: “director Donald Brittain chronicles the early years of Pierre Elliott Trudeau and René Lévesque. From their university days in the 1950s to 1967 when Lévesque left the Liberal Party and Trudeau became the federal Minister of Justice, Brittain attempts to get at the heart of what makes these men so fascinating.”

Part two: “covers the years between 1967 and 1977, a colourful decade that saw Trudeau win three federal elections, the 1970 October Crisis and the sweeping rise to power of the Parti Québécois.”

Part three: “spans the decade between 1976 and 1986. The film reveals the turbulent, behind-the-scenes drama during the Quebec referendum and the repatriation of the Canadian Constitution. In doing so, it also traces both Trudeau’s and Lévesque’s fall from power.”

The film is from, of course, The National Film Board
