This video, originally titled "Culture en Péril (Version Longue)", was created by a few Québec artists to denounce the cuts in cultural funding by the Conservative governement, led by Stephen Harper. This extended version of the original includes english subtitles.
When Beau Dommage's Michel Rivard visits a newly formed governmental committee overseeing cultural financing, language gaps and cultural misunderstandings abounds, mostly when Rivard plays his classical song, "La Complainte du Phoque en Alaska" (The Complaint of the Seal in Alaska)...
***I received a message about this video from the original creators, so I assume it's accepted that my subtitled version doesn't interfere with their intellectual property.***
