Myths for Profit: Canada’s Role in Industries of War and Peace

Nov. 17, 2018

Our film for November has changed. Vancouver filmmaker Elaine Briere needs more time to edit “Dangerous Hope: Canada’s Betrayal of Democracy in Haiti” and we look forward to seeing her and her new film in 2019.

Instead, we will be showing a related film by another Canadian filmmaker, Montreal-based Amy Miller. Released in 2009 but as relevant and revealing today as ever, “Myths for Profit” depicts the historical context for Canada’s gradual transition from altruistic peacekeeper to our current role as an active participant in military aggression overseas.

The full film can be viewed at Wide Open Exposure.
