    Canada's Top Ten Film Festival – Those Who Make Revolution Halfway Only Dig Their Own Graves
    Auditorium

    As part of our partnership with the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), join us for the screening of Those Who Make Revolution Halfway Only Dig Their Own Graves by filmmakers Mathieu Denis and Simon Lavoie, followed by an onstage conversation with special guests.

    About the movie

    Those Who Make Revolution Halfway Only Dig Their Own Graves was inspired by directors Mathieu Denis and Simon Lavoie’s speculations about Quebec’s massive 2012 student demonstrations, and what might have happened had the fervour not dissipated. A study of youth and political dogma, the three-hour-long film, which follows four largely middle-class radicals holed up in a dingy bungalow and plotting violent revolution, is like an agitprop fire sale, loaded with incendiary rhetoric.
