The Fate of America 1997

We're going to have a mini film festival this weekend to celebrate the 250th anniversary of the Plains of Abraham battle. This film (which features sequences from the film below) by Jacques Godbout is described as
Two well-known Quebec artists, a filmmaker and a playwright, look at various aspects of the story of the Battle of the Plains of Abraham. Whose version should prevail? Is history best served by documentary or fiction?

  1. Dear Sir,
    How odd that these Quebecois chaps seem to forget that after 1763 they were the most liberated and protected French in the world? No more feudalism! No more enforced Catholicism ! Mon dieu eh ?
    cordially,
