Supreme Law - The Constitution (delivered by Internet Stars from the NFB)
Rating

Americans are passionate about their constitution. Canadians aren’t. Supreme Law is here to change that.

Made in partnership with the Centre for Constitutional Studies and directed by two-time Emmy winner Katerina Cizek, this interactive "choose your own adventure" documentary brings together Canadian YouTube stars, constitutional scholars, historic video clips, and meticulously researched background on one of the most important and dramatic political events in Canada of the 20th century.

And it’s all wrapped in a brilliantly retro visual aesthetic with a soundtrack of tunes that rocked the country during the ’80s. This is an entertaining and rich resource for anyone who wants to understand the stories behind the Canadian Constitution and how they continue to resonate today.
