- Our National Parliament: the Inside Story
Almost all Canadians recognize the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa. But how many understand just what goes on there and how Parliament touches our lives?¸In Our National Parliament - The Inside Story a young parliamentary page takes us behind the scenes, acting as our guide to the inner workings of the legislative branch of government. This video shows us day-to-day life on Parliament Hill: the roles of the Prime Minister, Cabinet and opposition parties; the nuts and bolts of how a bill moves from conception, through committee and the Houses of Parliament on the way to becoming law; and the daily life of a back-bench MP.
- Just Watch Me: Trudeau and the '70s Generation
It wasn't easy growing up under the elegant and enigmatic Pierre Trudeau. In Just Watch Me, we meet eight people from across the country who did: Anglo and Franco, separatist and federalist, idealist and realist. People whose personal and national dreams are intertwined. They are the Trudeau generation--Canadians who grew up during the '70s, like director Catherine Annau, who looks at the lasting effects of Trudeau's audacious attempt to reconfigure the idea of Canada. This hip documentary travels across the country, its inspired cinematography showing us places we thought we knew--from the snowdrifts of Iqaluit to the towers of Calgary--in a whole new light. And it's all to the sounds the Trudeau kids grew up with: BTO, Bran Van 3000, Harmonium and Mitsou. Most of all, this is a love story that takes us into the heart of an era and the hearts of the people who will shape Canada's future--the Trudeau generation. In English and French with subtitles.
