Kid's View of Canada, A*

  • 1994 ----- color ----- 28 min ----- vhs
  • Nicolette Saina and her nine-year-old son, Jordan Schroder, traveled across the country to capture the attitudes and beliefs of other Canadian children Jordanís age. From a logging town on Vancouver Island to a fishing village in Newfoundland, to a native community in the far north, they visited 17 communities and interviewed over 40 nine-year-olds. Always thought-provoking, the kidsí responses range from poignant to hilarious and cover the gamut of issues from racism to clear-cut logging to Quebec separation. A refreshing perspective on Canadian identity and on what it means to be growing up Canadian in the nineties.
