Summary, etc.:
Canada's Charter of Rights and Freedoms gets six fresh perspectives with IN THE NAME OF ALL CANADIANS, a compilation of short documentaries commissioned by Hot Docs. From Indigenous rights to the controversial 'notwithstanding clause,' participating filmmakers take the Charter's key tenets off the page and into the lived experiences of Canada. Films include: LAST RESORT - An exploration of the precedent-setting case which sees the first ever Indigenous freedom of religion challenge to go before the Supreme Court of Canada. NOTWITHSTANDING - A doomsday scenario is imagined when Section 33, the notwithstanding clause, weaponizes the Charter against itself. THE LONG WAY HOME - The government denies re-entry to a Sudanese-born Canadian after allegations of terrorism. LESSONS INJUSTICE - As a lawyer, Danardo Jones is aware that the law can do little to protect his son against racism, but tries to discuss the issue with his son. L'INSPECTEUR - Well before minority language educational rights were in place, the difficulties in teaching French in Manitoba public schools are recalled through a story of school inspectors in the 1930's and 1940's. IN PART - Inspired by the Proust questionnaire, this is a mosaic of portraits and interviews, ranging from topics related to the Charter, to the existential, to the seemingly insignificant.
