Based on testimonies from citizens arrested without charges, during the state of exception declared by the Canadian government during the crisis of 1970, in Quebec. “We didn’t have enough money to shoot everything in color (…) the prison scenes were shot in color, because ordinary people don’t know the colors of prison.” Michel Brault
