Just Watch Me : Trudeau and the '70s Generation

Haut de la page

It wasn't easy growing up under the elegant and enigmatic Pierre Trudeau. In Just Watch Me, we meet eight people from across the country who did: Anglo and Franco, separatist and federalist, idealist and realist. People whose personal and national dreams are intertwined. They are the Trudeau generation--Canadians who grew up during the '70s, like director Catherine Annau, who looks at the lasting effects of Trudeau's audacious attempt to reconfigure the idea of Canada. This hip documentary travels across the country, its inspired cinematography showing us places we thought we knew--from the snowdrifts of Iqaluit to the towers of Calgary--in a whole new light. And it's all to the sounds the Trudeau kids grew up with: BTO, Bran Van 3000, Harmonium and Mitsou. Most of all, this is a love story that takes us into the heart of an era and the hearts of the people who will shape Canada's future--the Trudeau generation. In English and French with subtitles.
