Polytechnique the Film

I was listening to Jian Ghomeshi interview Denis Villenueve about Polytechnique. The main thing I took away from the interview was that the movie will focus on the women and their families rather than the killer. This will probably be disappointing to MacLeans Magazine and Mark Steyn who would have preferred an emphasis on the Murderous Muslim Hordes® swarming on our demographic horizon. Or, how uppity women-folk are these days. Sorry, went off there a bit.

Its not an easy story to tell and the film wont make a lot of money since it won't be shown by many movie chains. There's something about the story of this tragedy that brings out the absolute worst in media commentary. For that reason alone it deserves to be shown widely.

Keep telling this story. Throw it in the face of the mainstream misogynists. Please recommend this post
