Documentary: An American Weekend In Montreal

Documentary: An American Weekend In Montreal

Neve Campbell. Whoopi Goldberg.  Al Sharpton. Rosie O’Donnell. Lena Dunham.  What do these celebrities have in common? I’m sure they’re all connected through some strange degrees of separation.  But more importantly, they’ve all publicly declared they’d move to Canada if Donald Trump is elected President of the United States. 

What is it about Canada that stands to lure so many national treasures across the border? I spent my Fourth of July weekend exploring Montreal to find out.  In the short film, An American Weekend In Montreal, I take a brief, comedic look at the culture of this historic city.  It was a fun journey that I’m excited to share with all of you.

P.S. it won’t take up too much of your time.  If you can binge watch entire seasons of your favorite shows, you can spend 13 minutes learning about Canada (and laughing at me and Jairo).  Enjoy! And comment below with your thoughts!
