Ninth Floor

Ninth Floor

This is a penetrating look at the Sir George Williams University riot of February 1969, when six Caribbean students mounted a protest against institutional racism. This snowballed into 14-days of chaos and violence, with riot police storming the occupied ninth floor, and a storm of computer cards raining into the streets below.
