CAFFÈ ITALIA MONTRÉAL is a docudrama about the Italian community in Montreal, Quebec. The narrative traces this ethnic contingent from the turn-of-the-century immigrant era to modern times. The most intriguing sequences involve the incipient Fascist movement amongst Montreal Italians of the 1930s, and the means by which these pro-Mussolinites were squelched by the Canadian government. Many of these Italian immigrants in Montreal find it difficult to reconcile their nostalgia for their country of origin with their integration in their adoptive country.
