The documentary takes us into the heart of the 2012 student crisis to experience from the inside one of the most important social movements in Quebec history. In cinema verité style, the camera stays with the members of the largest student organization, CLASSE, as the crisis unfolds. We follow students and their spokespersons through the dramatic ups and downs of the strike with privileged access behind the scenes to experience with them the intense public debate that raged for weeks during the so-called the Maple Leaf Spring (Printemps érable).

There will be an optional discussion after the film. Everyone welcome. Films are free but donations welcome. Conserver House is wheelchair accessible but the washrooms are up the stairs.
