REMINDER!

The Free Thinking Film Society is proud to announce that we will be showing "The Quiet Illusion" (L'Illusion Tranquille) on October 11th at 7 PM at the Bronson Centre in downtown Ottawa.

"The Quiet Illusion" is a 2007 documentary from Quebec that examines the province's state religion of unionism and the disastrous effect this has had on its public finances. Now showing in English Canada for the first time.

The director of this film, Joanne Marcotte, will also be attending the screening to answer any questions after the show.

For more details on the film, you can visit the official website at:
http://www.lillusiontranquille.com/

"This Quebec-made documentary does what no francophone film has ever done before: It systematically challenges many of the Province's sacred cows, starting with the untouchability of "le modele quebecois"....This Quebec movie requires looking in the mirror."
Henry Aubin, Montreal Gazette

"This self-produced documentary has provoked a veritable crise de conscience in the province's media and cultural circles, simply by pointing out what is becoming increasingly obvious: Quebec is broken."
Macleans

"The nightmare scenario in The Quiet Illusion involves an ageing society living beyond its means, unable to shake the grip of meddlesome government and powerful trade unions. The place is Quebec, and the year is 2007."
Graeme Hamilton, The National Post

Here are the details:

When: October 11, 2008
Time: 7:00 PM
Where: Bronson Centre, 211 Bronson Avenue
Admission: $5.00
