29 / 92 Women's Labour History Project

Sara Diamond

1992, 17:20 minutes, colour, Eng.


The Great Canadian Depression began in 1929. In 29/92, scripted voices from that fargone era remind us of conditions which resonate as a sign of our own times.
Homelessness, hunger, despair and anger met empathy, resistance and possibility, as well as repression and violence, during the 1930's.
Women play a prominent role in the urban movement of the unemployed. Layers of original footage provide an impressionist glimpse of histories.
This is a short, fictional version of the full On to Ottawa video.
