Squat !

Québec (Canada)

In the summer of 2001 in Montreal, in the midst of a housing crisis, homeless people, badly housed people and young activists cleared out and occupied a vacant building. In the name of the right to housing and the desire to live differently, a political squat took shape. Under the voracious eye of the media, some fifty squatters set about developing an alternative project, which was gradually jeopardised by the municipal administration. Beyond the clichés conveyed, this documentary takes an inside look at the history of the squat, the reality of the squatters and their vision of the world. (Tënk)
