Roadsworth Airs on Télé-Québec on Monday February 9

Catch Alan Kohl’s documentary, Roadsworth: Crossing the Line tonight on Télé-Québec at 9:00 pm.

Roadsworth paints a portrait of artist Peter Gibson, who used the city streets of Montreal as canvases. He stencilled vines along traffic dividers, turned crosswalks into boot prints and, in the process, raised the pertinent issues of art and freedom of expression.

Gibson’s efforts were celebrated abroad and led to numerous opportunities. Yet the reaction at home was different – he was arrested by Montreal police and charged on several counts of mischief with penalties ranging from $200 to $5,000.

The trailer has been viewed close to 10,000 times, which makes it the most popular trailer viewed on our site. So take a look, and then catch the film in its entirety tonight.
