Cinema of Pain

Liz Czach

Original essays argue that the loss of a cohesive nationalist vision in Quebec, triggered by the loss of the 1995 referendum on sovereignty, has resulted in a pervasive nostalgia that permeates all aspects of Québécois culture. In Québécois cinema, this nostalgia is evoked as the element of pain associated with the longing for a return home.
