PRESS:  

”I knew from the get-go that language would be a part of the film, and growing up with Bon Cop, Bad Cop and stuff like that, a lot of the humour comes from that, but language is very much a door into a different culture and a different way of understanding, so in order to tell multiple stories, we had to have multiple languages. It’s a different way of thinking, it’s a different way of speaking and it’s a different way of laughing. (…)

When you speak about Canada as a country, you have to keep in mind that French speakers had a very different conception of what Canada was upon Confederation, and sometimes, when you talk in broad strokes about Canada, you ignore that. Second, Indigenous communities were here well before, so our concept of borders does not apply to their shared histories, so trying to respect that diversity is really important.”

— Québexit director Joshua Demers
