Twice upon a Time/Il était deux fois

Top of page

The citizens of Stereoville literally have to double up in their efforts to deal with the two languages in their community. The speaker of one language is tied to a speaker of the other. They are literally back-to-back. Into this two-stepping society comes an unattached individual who speaks both languages, and is not tied to anyone. His presence is the cause of considerable consternation among the locals. Twice Upon a Time is a satirical look at the issue of bilingualism in Canada.

1979, 10 min 49 s
