Discordia

Directed by Ben Addelman & Samir Mallal - 2004.

On September 9, 2002, a scheduled appearance by former Israeli Prime
Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sparked heated debate at Montreal's
Concordia University. By the end of the day, the "Concordia riot" has
made international news, from CNN to Al-Jazeera. This film documents
the fallout from that eventful day, following three young campus activists
as they negotiate the most formative year of their lives. Filmmakers Ben
Addelman and Samir Mallal jump into the fray with street-smart bravado
and a handheld camera. Buoyed by the songs of hip-hop artist Buck 65,
this film offers a tonic reflection on the current state of Canadian student
activism and the enduring value of tolerance.

Produced by the
National Film Board of Canada (NFB).
