Quebec FTAA protests - daytime teargas  

QUEBEC: AT THE WALL
a film by Zack Winestine

On April 20-22, 2001, the leaders of 34 nations met in Quebec to discuss the Free Trade Agreement of the Americas (FTAA).  A 2 1/2 miles long, 10 feet high security wall was constructed around all of Quebec's 'Old City', site of the meetings, in an attempt to silence protest.  A first-person document, this film conveys what it was like to be present at the wall as thousands of people – of all ages and from all walks of life – overcame massive barrages of tear gas to make their voices heard.

Quebec: At the Wall is available on DVD as a short film included with the feature documentary Caravan/Prague. The DVD can be ordered from all online DVD retailers, including Powells.com and Amazon.com

2001, 12 minutes, NTSC, Stereo, Color
