CFUV @ VFF: Ninth Floor

19690123aplp006.jpg

Ninth Floor is a documentary dealing with a little known incident of Canadian history. In 1969 Montreal a group of students held the ninth floor of a building. This started with six Caribbean students filing a complaint against a professor for systematically giving them lower grades than their white peers. The process the University took didn’t sit well with the student body which led to the occupation of the building. This documentary takes detached mode to press its story and interviews. You are not led by the filmmakers questions but only the stories of those involved. You see them a far or through windows spying on their stories and themselves. This film’s message of racism in Canada is as relevant today as the moment it portrays in the 1960s.
