INSURGENCE
Groupe d'action en cinéma Épopée / Canada / 2013 / 137 ' / French - English / S.T. English

Insurgence is a documentary about the vast social mobilization that took place in Quebec during the spring of 2012. Initially propelled by the student strike for accessible education, the scope of the movement soon broadened to take on the government, the impunity and violence of the Montreal police force, the exploitation of untapped natural resources, and the current economic system.

The strength of the “Printemps Érable” is rooted in anonymity. The shared experience of the movement flows through dispersal, reaching into the solitude of each protester. Each one recognizes her situation in that of the others; affective resonance is transmuted to a point of fusion. Repression can only break up linear collectivities; here, at every turn, at every corner, the common returns in a swarm.

Épopée is a collective of filmmakers and film craftspeople, created during the making of Men for Sale, a documentary about the lives of drug users and sex workers in Montreal. The group was also formed in the context of the digital revolution and the takeover of national cinemas by television and large distributors. Épopée reclaims the means of film production through a newfound creative and collective process. Between 2009 and 2012, Épopée set up a project in collaboration with sex workers and drug users in Montreal’s Centre-Sud neighborhood. The project resulted in a website (epopee.me), two feature films (The State of the Moment and The State of the World), and several gallery installations.
