I Hate to Lose

Haut de la page

Filmed in the predominantly anglophone, upper-middle-class Montréal riding of Westmount during the months preceding Québec's history-making election of November 15, 1976. I Hate to Lose documents a play within a play, a brisk, natural drama that sparkles with humour. The cameras follow closely behind leading local political contenders George Springate, Nick Auf der Maur, and Harold 'Shorty' Fairhead, chronicling the unfolding of an election campaign on the local hustings, and gleaning retrospective insights into anglophone neglect of the Parti Québécois's swelling popularity. (Follow-up film: Tigers and Teddy Bears.)

1977, 56 min 50 s
