The Cinema of Canada contains 24 essays, each on a different film and divides itself into three distinct categories: English-Canadian cinema- Qu?bec cinema- Aboriginal cinema. In so doing, it provides a fascinating historical account of the development of film and documentary traditions across the diverse national and regional communities in Canada. Among the many important films discussed are Le D?clin de lempire am?ricain (1988), Ive Heard the Mermaids Singing (1988), Exotica (1994), Le Confessionale (1995) and Atanarjuat: The Fast Runner (2001).
