Black October is a 2000 documentary film written, directed and narrated by Terence McKenna and produced by Stephen Phizicky for CBC television on the October Crisis in Canada which aired in October 2000. It focuses on the autumn of 1970, following the kidnapping of British Trade Commissioner James Cross and Quebec Minister of Labour Pierre Laporte by the Front de libération du Québec in October.
