Synopsis: In the 1960’s, the Turcot Interchange rewrote the reality of Montreal. In era of Expo ’67, it was the most tangible manifestation of the city’s newly adopted modernity. Appearing to defy physics, monstrous concrete slabs poetically redistributed cars to all parts of the city, the suburbs, the South Shore and beyond. A major side effect was that entire neighbourhoods were destroyed to make room for the new superstructure. Now, 40 years later, the structure is falling apart and needs to be rethought and rebuilt. The province is pushing through a 1.5 billion plan that again will displace neighbourhoods, displace families and allow for even more cars. This film would like to look at the past, present and future of the Turcot, and see what have we learned from it – and where we can go.
