- By donation (on site)

[Le français suit]

Join Cinema Politica Concordia for a special screening of BRAS DE FER, followed by a discussion with writer and co-founder of the MISN: Mining Injustice Solidarity Network Sakura Saunders. The poignant doc follows a community’s fight against the Quebec City Port’s heavy metal pollution, and asks the question – what can civil society do against corporate malfeasance and government complicity?

This screening is co-presented with Sustainable Concordia and co-sponsored by the Sustainability Action Fund Concordia. Admission is by donation ($5-10 suggested). The venue is wheelchair accessible. Childcare provided on site by the Montreal Childcare Collective with 24 hour notice (https://childcarecollective.wordpress.com/about/ )

BRAS DE FER
Jean-Laurence Seaborn & Jonathan Seaborn / Canada / 2017 / 77 ‘ / French / S.T. English

On October 26, 2012, a red dust covers Quebec city, more specifically the Limoilou neighbourhood where Véronique Lalande and her family live. Heavy metals fall on the neighbourhoods surrounding the city’s harbour, which is home to Arrimage du Saint-Laurent—the largest nickel emitter in North America. BRAS DE FER bears witness to Véronique and her community’s fierce battle for a healthy environment and against corporate malfeasance and government complicity.

Rejoignez Cinema Politica Concordia pour une projection spéciale de BRAS DE FER, suivie d’une discussion avec l’auteure et co-fondatrice du MISN: Mining Injustice Solidarity Network Sakura Saunders. Le film suit la lutte d’une communauté contre la pollution aux métaux lourds du Port de Québec, et pose la question – une simple citoyenne réussira-t-elle à obliger une multinationale à se conformer aux lois ?

Cette projection est co-présentée avec Sustainable Concordia and co-sponsored by the Sustainability Action Fund Concordia. Admission sur base de contributions volontaires (5-10$ suggéré). La salle est accessible en fauteuil roulant. Un service de garde d’enfants est disponible gratuitement à toutes nos projections grâce à The Childcare Collective avec un délai de 24 heures (https://childcarecollective.wordpress.com/about/).

BRAS DE FER
Jean-Laurence Seaborn & Jonathan Seaborn / Canada / 2017 / 77 ‘ / Français / S.T. Anglais

Le 26 octobre 2012, une poussière rouge recouvre la ville de Québec, et plus particulièrement le quartier Limoilou, où Véronique Lalande et sa famille résident. Des métaux lourds tombent sur les quartiers avoisinants le port de Québec qui abrite Arrimage du Saint-Laurent, le plus important transbordeur de nickel en Amérique du Nord. Depuis cet épisode, Véronique appelle, écrit, convoque; elle propage son indignation et son désir d’un environnement sain, et mène tout un mouvement communautaire vers une victoire historique.
