Film Description:
"To mark the 100th anniversary of the National Battlefields Commission, My Park, My Plains provides a lively, humorous, and moving account of defining historical moments and various uses of the Plains of Abraham over the years. Through an interplay of archival images and original footage, the film recounts the battles fought there, reminds us that people once golfed, went horseback riding, and applauded Buffalo Bill there, and lets us roam through this site where skiers, Sunday strollers, and families on toboggans harmoniously mingle with hundreds of thousands of people who come each year to attend grand celebrations and festivals. The Plains of Abraham have always been a choice meeting place for Quebec City's visitors and locals, and today more than ever, this historic urban park is a prime location for remembering, relaxing, and dreaming."
