A Troublesome Woman

A Troublesome Woman is a short animated film and part of the ICI multimedia project that reveals for the first time the stories of some of the 600 Italian Canadians that were labelled ‘enemy aliens’  and arrested during RCMP raids on June 10, 1940 – the day after Canada declared war on Italy. Using a unique blend of powerful first person audio accounts, rare archival materials stop action and 2D animation, this short film and website uncovers the dramatic events that led a country known for its promotion and protection of human rights to violate some of its citizen’s most basic civil liberties.
