This video captures the 2009 Montreal book launch of the McGill-Queen's University Press collection Challenge for Change: Activist Documentary at the National Film Board of Canada. The first half is shot during the Cinema Politica co-sponsored screening of a handful of carefully selected CFC documentaries. The second half takes place at the cocktails part of the event, at Concordia University, where we had many CFC dignitaries on hand (some in their 90s!) to say a few words the camera. Thanks to Thomas Szacka-Marier for the camera work and editing.
