Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Robin Spry, Prologue was the first Canadian film to screen at the Venice Film Festival. Set and filmed during the sixties, this fiction feature tells the story of a young Montrealer who edits an underground newspaper with help from his female friend and a draft dodger from the United States. Two rival philosophies of dissenting youth become evident in the choices they make: militant protest vs. communal retreat. The film includes some seminal archival footage of a speech by legendary anti-war activist Abbie Hoffman and bloody rioting during the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago.

Ce film contient des scènes de violence. Pour public averti.

    I saw Prologue on tv in Norway, just after seeing Easy Rider in the cinema, it all made sense again. I've searched for this film, now and then, for nearly fifty years; at last, thanks nfb.
