Quebec: My Country Mon Pays

Part history, part personal story, part lament, award-winning director John Walker’s film is a heartfelt narrative from an Anglo who left, but has never stopped loving, Quebec. Walker himself narrates and is very present on camera, making the story like a visual personal notebook as he speaks with a who's who of Quebecois artists – filmmakers, journalists and actresses – as well as his own friends and family, about what has happened and the distance between the French and the English in Quebec. There is a delicate poignancy here, though, not anger, as the filmmaker balances his desire to return against his understanding that he'll never fit the new reality.
