Canada’s Top Ten: Those Who Make Revolution Halfway, Only Dig Their Own Graves

Fri, Mar 17 / 7 pm
Sat, Mar 18 / 3 pm
Sun, Mar 19 / 3 pm
(Ceux qui font les révolutions à moitié n’ont fait que se creuser un tombeau)
Directed by Mathieu Denis & Simon Lavoie
2016, Canada, 183 min
French & English with subtitles

Winner of Best Canadian Feature at last year’s TIFF, this stunningly imaginative three hour epic was one of the highlights of the entire festival. The film is inspired by the directors’ speculations about Quebec’s massive 2012 student demonstrations and what might have happened had the fervor not dissipated. A study of youth and political dogma, the film follows four largely middle class radicals holed up in a dingy bungalow plotting violent revolution. One of the most audacious works to emerge from Quebec and Canada in recent memory.

Canada’s Top Ten Film Festival – Now in its 16th year, Canada’s Top Ten Film Festival highlights the best features, shorts, and student shorts from across the country. The breadth of programming selected by  filmmakers, programmers, critics, and industry professionals represents the creative strength of the country’s best cinema.
