Canada’s Top Ten: My Internship in Canada

Thu, Feb 11 / 9:15 pm
Directed by Philippe Falardeau
2015, Canada, 108 min
French & Creole w/ English subtitles

As Oscar-nominated director Philippe Falardeau’s gentle satire, Guibord s’en va-t-en guerre) opens, a Conservative minority is tabling legislation that will send us to war. When one of their MPs falls ill, the deciding vote is left to independent Steve Guibord, a former hockey player whose pro career fizzled due to his fear of flying. Pressure comes from all sides, even at home, but salvation arrives in the form of a new intern, a Haitian student who knows more about the ins and outs of our system than Steve does. This film exposes Canadians’ ingrained tendency to focus on the regional instead of the wider picture, taking for granted the unique system that makes our democracy function. Not surprisingly, it takes someone from another country to explain it to us.

Canada’s Top Ten Film Festival is generously sponsored by IATSE 856 and Radio Canada Manitoba.
