March 6: Screening of “Insurgence”


insurgenceposter-page-001Collins Living-Learning Center in the Brown Cinema (near 11th and Woodlawn) March 6th at 8pm.  Preview:


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 movement allows the common to flow 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.
