Les Fils

Directed by Manon Cousin
Canada, 2019 (documentary, 96 minutes, colour, French)

Film Description:
"In the late 1960s, in the Pointe-Saint-Charles neighbourhood of Montreal, a religious group called the Fils de la charité begins to question its civic involvement. Against the instructions of the Catholic Church, the activist working-class priests decide to take to the streets and meet the locals, considerably influencing the social and political climate of the time. Between opposition from those in power and socio-political struggles, Manon Cousin paints a fascinating portrait of a group of apostles fighting against the Church hierarchy. Thanks to insightful commentary and previously unseen archival materials, this empathetic and humanist documentary pays touching tribute to worthy representatives of the Quiet Revolution."
