Generation 101. A Movie About My Country.
Do you feel completely integrated in Québec culture?
This is the question Claude Godbout asks the kids of my old high school, École Secondaire Saint-Luc, in his doc Génération 101. 96% of the kids at Saint-Luc were born outside Canada.
Trust me, those of us part of the other 4% wondered as much as anybody else.
Why should we go to school in French? The question is as controversial now as it was then.
Three Children of 101, a Hungarian Jew, a feminist from Palestine and a Indian from Madagascar who are now staunch supporters of the education measures in bill 101 give their answer.
This is what my Québec looks like.
