This hard-hitting direct-cinema portrait captures the alienation and suppressed rebelliousness of Quebec youth of the early sixties. Produced for the Quebec Liberal party, it shocked members at the convention at which it was shown, not least because of the young people’s constantly expressed dissatisfaction with traditional politics and their desire for alternative solutions. The film was shown in a shortened English version on CBC-TV in 1964.
