A powerful, harrowing and ultimately inspirational story of six months in 1961 that changed America forever. From May until November 1961, more than 400 black and white Americans risked their lives—and many endured savage beatings and imprisonment—for simply traveling together on buses and trains as they journeyed through the Deep South. Deliberately violating Jim Crow laws, the Freedom Riders met with bitter racism and mob violence along the way, sorely testing their belief in nonviolent activism.

The film will be followed by a moderated discussion with special guests.

"Fellag's deeply felt performance is matched by the natural charm of the novice actors whom Falardeau guides to poignancy, enhanced by Jean-Pascal Hamelin's beautifully spare piano score. Monsieur Lazhar is as simple as sunlight, yet as difficult as forgiveness." Peter Howell, The Toronto Star
