About the producer:


Ronald Rudin, a professor of French-Canadian history at Concordia University in Montreal, is the author of six books and producer of two documentary films. He is a public historian with an interest in how the larger population comes to understand the past. This focus is particularly evident in his book, Remembering and Forgetting in Acadie: A Historian's Journey through Public Memory  and the associated website, winner of both the 2010 book award of the National (U.S.) Council on Public History and the inaugural public history prize of the Canadian Historical Association (2011). Questions of public memory are also at the centre of his documentary film Life After Île Ste-Croix, directed by Leo Aristimuño and distributed by the National Film Board of Canada.
