The Angryphone movement. Filmmaker Jimmy K sits down and speaks with the prominent players of this Angryphone movement and others. Topics of discussion: the Quebec language laws and language police; the mass Quebec exodus; the two Quebec referendums; the lead up to the Clarity Act and various Canadian civil and language rights events, boycotts and protests.
