This feature documentary profiles a key element of the 1990 Oka crisis in which the Mohawk communities of Kahnawake and Kanehsatake stood against the Canadian military and Canadian citizens in a stand-off that turned violent. On August 28, 1990, a convoy of 75 cars left the Mohawk community of Kahnawake and crossed Montreal's Mercier Bridge—straight into an angry mob that pelted the vehicles with rocks. The targets of this violence were Mohawk women, children and elders leaving Kahnawake, in fear of a possible advance by the Canadian army. This film is the fourth in Alanis Obomsawin's landmark series on the Mohawk rebellions that shook Canada in 1990.

Extrait de la sélection : Alanis Obomsawin Retrospective

This was my last film on the Oka Crisis. Everyone was talking about the rock throwing that was going on, and it always bothered me that we never heard from the people in the cars. They had no voice. So I decided to give them a voice. It was only after this film was done that I felt free, that I could walk away from this subject matter.
