Directed by award-winning experimental filmmaker and performance artist Quinn, THE U.S. AND US provides an intellectual romp through the past, present and future of Canada-U.S. relations.

Questioning the very notion of Canadian sovereignty, this short documentary features an amusing mélange of Quinn's street performances and sobering interviews from some of Canada's leading authors, activists and politicos, including Mel Hurtig, Linda McQuaig, Maude Barlow and David Orchard. What emerges in this provocatively entertaining film, completed within weeks of federal elections in both countries, is the picture of an increasingly complicated relationship with our neighbour to the South.
