The Museum of Work & Culture invites the public to an upcoming event that will help curate the 2018 Flickers’ Rhode Island International Film Festival.
Ciné Québec, an evening of Québecois films in celebration of the month of Francophonie, takes place Thursday, March 8, at the MoWC. The evening will begin at 6pm with a wine and cheese reception in the MoWC gallery.
At 7pm, attendees will watch and vote on new and exciting short films from Québec currently under consideration by RIIFF. The film that wins the most votes will gain automatic competition entry to the festival.
Ciné Québec will conclude with a screening of the feature-length documentary Quebec My Country Mon Pays.
The film charts the aftermath of Quebec’s Quiet Revolution in the 1960s. This social justice movement unleashed dramatic cultural and political changes that led to the separatist movement, the FLQ terrorist crisis and, ultimately, the exodus of more than 500,000 English-speaking Quebecers. Montreal-born filmmaker John Walker reveals his own complicated relationship with the province in a film brimming with love and longing. He explores a very personal story through the lens of a cast of characters including three generations of his family, childhood confidantes and artistic contemporaries. In a quest to make sense of a divisive and transformative time in Quebec’s evolution, they each wrestle with their memories, their decisions and the continuing reverberations.
Tickets are $15 and may be reserved by calling (401) 769-9675 or purchased at ShopMoWC.com.
This event is made possible by the Délegation of Québec in Boston.
