Join us for the Toronto premiere of INSURGENCE! A collective interpretation of Quebec's Maple Spring, this super-charged doc will have you reaching for your red square and gas mask. Filmmakers from Groupe d'action en cinéma Épopée will be in attendance and entry by donation!

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.
