Screening Qu?bec explores the connections between Qu?b?cois moving images, national identity and the role played by film, television and video practices in the construction and perpetuation of alternative public spheres in Qu?b?cois culture. Beginning with the groundbreaking work of Qu?b?cois silent film pioneer L?o-Ernest Ouimet, MacKenzie goes on to explore the influential Path?'s presence in Qu?bec. He then looks at such elements as the first French language features in Canada, cin?ma direct, the video activism of Challenge for Change/Soci?t? nouvelle and the "post-referendum" cinema of Denys Arcand and Robert Lepage.
