MOVIE NIGHT avec Alban Maino

November 21, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Voyageur, 1608

From the glacial Winds of Louisbourg, Nova Scotia, all the way to the Golf of Mexico, from Terre Neuve to the Louisiana, « Voyageur » finds his Franco American roots and travels in time.

A docu-fiction filmed as an historical documentary, mixing past and present in a new narrative form, this 10,000 miles road movie, searches for a path in the past on the traces of the Nouvelle France in Northern America. The character, a historian journalist dressed as a voyageur from the 17th century, becomes a “coureur des bois”, and retraces the steps of a 200 years odyssey during his journey; he tells us the most extraordinary untold story about the French Presence in Northern America by walking the land.

Music, Strong characters and beautiful sceneries, 52 minutes of pure historical entertainment by film director Jean Dulon.

Q&A after the movie with Alban Maino – from the Maine Film Association – who was involved in the production of the film.

$9 general admission / $7 for Alliance Française members. Buy your tickets online (link here) or at the PMA counter (don’t forget to mention if you are a member of the Alliance Française).
