This articles takes an important Québécois film by Jean Chabot, Voyage en Amérique avec un un cheval emprunté, in order to think about the nature of frontiers in general as well as to suggest that Québec’s own national question is better approached through Freud's notion of the ‘uncanny’ than by a traditional political understanding of hard borders.
