Unsettling 150 on Canada Day Weekend

Cinema Politica and Vtape have joined together to present an unsettling film and video program for free streaming during this year’s “Canada Day” weekend, beginning today. On the occasion of the government of Canada’s sesquicentennial celebrations, we are offering the following exceptional titles as works that challenge and unsettle dominant narratives that have storied Canada.

The Unsettling 150: Actes de résistance program is available for free online viewing across the country on the July 1st “Canada Day” weekend for 72 hours: from Today, Friday June 30th to Sunday July 2nd.

These are incisive stories of resistance told by some of the most committed and engaged media artists in the country. They represent only the tip of a massive iceberg of stories, both told and untold, but together cover crucial ground and provoke critical thought.

We acknowledge that these films and videos will screen in many traditional territories across this country, and that these territories, often unceded or subject to broken treaties, are sacred lands to many Indigenous nations. We are grateful to the artists and their subjects for allowing us to share these stories with you. We are further grateful to the National Film Board of Canada, who kindly provided five of the films.

Start free streaming by following this link.
