OFFICIAL TRAILER RELEASE FOR FEATURE LENGTH
CANADIAN HORROR DOCUMENTARY, ‘THE QUIET REVOLUTION’.
441 Films and Cine-excess are pleased to unveil the official trailer for their upcoming feature length documentary, The Quiet Revolution: State, Society and the Canadian Horror Film.
The Quiet Revolution: State, Society and the Canadian Horror Film is the new feature length documentary which considers how social, political and cultural tensions within differing Canadian territories have shaped national horror film traditions from the 1960s until the present day. The first part of the documentary considers the social transitions in 1960s and 1970s Quebecois culture that influenced a new range of controversial horror productions and sub-genres pioneered by filmmakers such as David Cronenberg and William Fruet.
The Quiet Revolution: State, Society and the Canadian Horror Film also considers the territorial shifts in horror cinema production from Quebec to other regions such as Toronto and Vancouver during the 1990s. The documentary concludes by profiling contemporary female directors such as the Soska Sisters, Nyla Innuksuk and Gigi Saul Guerrero, whose work challenges the boundaries of gender, sexuality and national identity in Canadian horror cinema.
The film will embark on a film festival run shortly and to celebrate we are releasing the film’s official trailer.
