What’s Left?

Noam Gonick recently uploaded a totally radical and extremely informative CBC documentary featuring his father Cy Gonick. This documentary is about the history of radicalism in Canada and the “Waffle Movement” – an attempt from within the membership of the New Democratic Party to veer the organization towards the extreme left, which was voted down.

In related news, Noam Gonick’s film 1919, a re-visioning of the General Strike of 1919 set in a Chinese barbershop/bathhouse, is totally worth checking out.
