Director John Walker reflects on his complex relationship with Québec as a member of a family that has a 250-year history there. He charts the course of rapid change wrought by the Quiet Revolution: from the separatist movement, FLQ crisis and political referenda to the exodus of half a million people from Québec. Comments from family and francophone contemporaries--Denys Arcand, Jacques Godbout and Louise Pelletier--elucidate a complexity of place. It's one that persists decades later, as a perfectly bilingual Montréal millenial reveals her experiences today mirror Walker's own. 

John Walker left Québec despite 250 years of his family's history there. Yet it haunts him, and he longs to return. Provocative and engaging, Québec My Country Mon Pays probes questions of identity, place and belonging.
