A documentary about the vast social mobilization in Quebec during the spring of 2012. Initially propelled by the student strike for accessible education, the scope of the movement soon broadened to take on the government, the impunity and violence of the Montreal police force, the exploitation of untapped natural resources, and the current economic system. Épopée is a collective of filmmakers and film craftspeople, created during the making of Men for Sale, a documentary about the lives of drug users and sex workers in Montreal. The group was also formed in the context of the digital revolution and the takeover of national cinemas by television and large distributors. Épopée reclaims the means of film production through a new-found creative and collective process. Between 2009 and 2012, Épopée set up a project in collaboration with sex workers and drug users in Montreal’s Centre-Sud neighbourhood. The project resulted in a website (epopee.me), two feature films (The State of the Moment and The State of the World), and several gallery installations. A new feature film, Love in a Time of Civil War, written during the epopee.me writing workshops, will begin shooting in November 2012.
