About Charter Flight Productions

In the fall of 2013, three doctoral students in Concordia University’s Department of Communication Studies launched a documentary project to intervene in media coverage of the Charter of Quebec Values.

They were armed with a series of critical questions about the discussions, anecdotes and assumptions produced by the Charter — Where did it come from? What do the government’s pamphlets and advertisements say about its goals? Who is left out by such visions of secularism? How does a conversation about state secularism connect to media reports of violence against women who wear hijabs? What happens next?

To answer these questions, and to prompt still more, Trish Audette-Longo, Mariam Esseghaier, and Marie-Eve Lefebvre have produced, “Tout cela est…,” a five-part web-based documentary featuring students and faculty members from Concordia University.
