In the Season 2 premiere, Ph.D. Candidate Sarah Miles talks with Gabe and Craig about the documentary film Les Rose and Quebec’s October Crisis of 1970.  Released on the 50th anniversary of the crisis, in which the capture of a British diplomat and the Deputy Premier of Quebec by members of the radical separatist organization FLQ prompted the Canadian government to clamp down on civil liberties, the film explores themes of violence, nationalism, and memory from the perspective of director Felix Rose, the son of one of the FLQ militants involved.
