About the Film
Student politics is an intense look at the political realities of a university under situations of conflict; it is about student power and students in power about student unions and their struggle for legitimization, about the role students play in world affairs and how Concordia University came to understand that role in 2002. A documentary shot throughout the school year in the wake of a mass protest and international attention, Student Politics sticks close the students, professors and university administration at the heart of a divided university, continually asking, what is the role of a student union?
