Hello Deg:
The title is actually the Bronswik Affair and its available from the National
Film Board of Canada.

The Bronswik Affair
1978, 23 min 25 s
A very funny yet deadly serious film, The
Bronswik Affair demonstrates the
effectiveness of advertising in motivating
people to buy products they don't need.
It entertains through the comic appeal of
its characters and the baroque situations
they fall prey to. It also lays bare some
facts about the excesses of
consumerism prompted by a steady flow
of commercials.
Robert Awad, André Leduc

René Jodoin

Script and Text
Robert Awad

Simon Leblanc, Raymond Dumas, Jacques
Avoine, Richard Moras
