Movie Download: The Tragedy of the Winnipeg Jets by L’Atelier National du Manitoba

In 2006, L'Atelier National du Manitoba (a filmmaking co-op of genius funnymen) released a phenomenal piece of docu-fiction. The film was banned due to copyright violations, as it is made primarily of stolen television footage. A few copies are floating around (I may or may not have one, since I know the good folk of the L'Atelier, whose identities I will never reveal), but now you can watch the entire 60-minute movie (an epic tragedy and a masterful comedy rolled into one) at the glorious UbuWeb: so do yourself a favour, pop some popcorn, and sit back for the best hour you'll spend today, with The Tragedy of the Winnipeg Jets.
