Claude Jutra and the culture of silence
If you didn't already know the name Claude Jutra, you probably know it now. This week, Quebeckers are seeing the late filmmaker in a new light.
On Tuesday, a new Jutra biography mentioned Jutra's sexual interest in underage teenagers. The next day, La Presse published the allegations of a man who says Jutra sexually abused him as a boy, beginning when he was six years old.
Lise Ravary, a columnist with the Journal de Montreal, joins Shad to talk about the scandal and the upheaval it's caused, from a name change for the Prix Jutra to the removal of his name from streets and parks across the province.
