After the Montreal Massacre
A film by Gerry Rogers
Canada, 1990, 27 minutes, Color, DVD
Order No. W99173
On December 6, 1989, a gunman entered the engineering building at the University of Montreal and killed fourteen women. This forceful, moving documentary situates this extraordinary crime within the context of other kinds of violence against women. A wounded survivor and other students describe the harrowing event, widely understood as a backlash against feminism. Activists and journalists explain its impact, linking the massacre with cases of rape, sexual harassment and torture worldwide. This lucid, thought-provoking tape is indispensable for organizations dealing with violence against women, as well as for women's studies classes.

    "Serves as a powerful catalyst for facing, discussing and working to eradicate the everyday violence that threatens and demeans women. Highly recommended."
