Our Voices

Young Quebec natives tell their own funny, poignant and moving stories through a series of short films about important aspects of their lives; their land, culture, music and identity. We meet the filmmakers in their own homes and on their own terms.

Some of the films included in this episode:

  • A film by a teenage aboriginal mother about her life as a very young mother
  • A documentary about the loss of life due to car accidents in a community in Northern Quebec living along a highway built by a mining company
  • A story of hope from a disabled aboriginal man whose film about his own life turned the attitudes of his community around
  • One family's reflexion on the languages they speak through four generations.

Sat. March 3, 2012 / Lost Years, Part 2

LOST YEARS is an epic documentary mini-series touching on the largest exodus in humankind, covering over 150 years of history of the Chinese in Canada and abroad.

An epoch that delivers an important message, namely, "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." (Spanish philosopher, George Santayana (1863-1952), in Reason in Common Sense, The Life of Reason.)

We witness how man's inhumanity to man continually plays out in world history and affairs, in part through the advances of new media and the vastness of our global village.

Our journey begins in old China in 1910 and concludes with the movement to embrace redress as a concept of social justice in the modern world of Canada, the United States, New Zealand and Australia, exactly one century later.
