On the occasion of the Festival de la Francophonie, we invite you to join us for the screening of award-winning satirical comedy My Internship in Canada. The film will be screened in French with English subtitles.
Guibord is an independent Member of Parliament who represents Prescott-Makadew in Rapides-aux-Outardes, a vast county in Northern Quebec. As the entire country watches, Guibord unwillingly finds himself in the awkward position of holding the decisive vote to determine whether Canada will go to war. Accompanied by his wife, his daughter and an idealistic intern from Haiti named Sovereign, Guibord travels across his district in order to consult his constituents. While groups of lobbyists get involved in a debate that spins out of control, the MP will have to face his own conscience. 'My Internship in Canada' is a biting political satire in which politicians, citizens and lobbyists go head-to-head tearing democracy to shreds.
