Archipelago ★★★★

Hot Docs 2021 #2

It goes without saying that an experimental, animated essay film about Quebec's history is right up my alley. Personal taste aside, I'm a bit sad I couldn't watch this film in a dark theatre or in a gallery space, but its impact remains profound. This is some of the strongest animation I've ever seen and it's proof that Canadian cinema is thriving when you take the time to look for it.
