About the featured film: “The Human Experiment lifts the veil on the shocking reality that thousands of untested, unregulated chemicals are in the products we use every day, our homes, and inside each of us.

Cinema Saturdays: Paul à Québec @ Museum of Work & Culture
Mar 3 @ 1:30 pm

Beginning Saturday, March 3, the Museum of Work & Culture will host Cinema Saturdays, a weekly presentation of a French-language film produced in Québec. All films will be screened at 1:30 p.m. and are subtitled in English. The films are included with the price of museum admission, purchased at the door ($8/adults, $6/students and seniors, free/children under ten).

The series will kick off with Paul à Québec. Paul, an aspiring artist, accompanies his wife Lucie and their daughter to celebrate Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day at Lucie’s parents’ home. When Paul notes the declining health of Roland, the bleeding-heart but gruff patriarch, the artist is inspired to make Roland the subject of his first comic strip.

Cinema Saturdays is presented as part of the MoWC’s celebration of Francophonie, a monthlong celebration of French language and culture in New England. It is made possible with the support of the Québec Delegation in Boston.

Other Cinema Saturdays will include:

March 10, Roger D’Astous: This documentary film embarks on a journey throughout the exceptional projects of Roger D’Astous, one of the most important Canadian architects of the 20th century. A student of Frank Lloyd Wright, he worked all his life to create a nordic architecture. Once a starchitect of the ’60s, this flamboyant artist then fell from grace before rising again at the dawn of the century.

March 17, Les Loups: In Les Loups, Elie, a young woman from the city, comes to a remote North Atlantic island to convalesce and get to know the community. The annual seal hunt is in full swing, and Elie feels both drawn to and repelled by the men engaged in it. Elie’s presence arouses curiosity and mistrust. Maria, the village matriarch and den mother, seeks to uncover the secret reason behind Elie’s visit.

Ciné-Québec @ Museum of Work & Culture | Woonsocket | Rhode Island | United States

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.

Wine With Dr. Fine: A Benefit for Affordable Healthcare in RI @ SEEN Gallery  | Pawtucket | Rhode Island | United States

Hey Rhode Island! We are so excited to share that on March 24th, 2018 Healthcare Revolt will be hosting our first ever fundraising event! The event will include live music from the The Horse-Eyed Men, raffles, games, live jazz, a silent auction and a short address from Dr. Fine, former director of the Department of Health, addressing the need for change and our plans for the Rhode Island health care system. We hope many of you can attend and be a part of a new, community-focused chapter of health care in Rhode Island. Tickets will go on sale February 1st, so keep an eye out. We are looking forward to organizing and mobilizing with our community — all the while enjoying each other’s company.

ABOUT US:

Healthcare Revolt is a Rhode Island organized effort in partnership with the George Wiley Center to build a health care system that is for people, not profit. We are organizing health care workers and RI citizens to fight for better patient care in their hospitals, community health centers and practices. We want to build systems of care in each Rhode Island community that are run by and for community members. This includes a plan to provide public, free primary health care for every single Rhode Islander. We’ve already begun in Central Falls where Michael Fine M.D., former director of the Department of Health, has partnered with Blackstone Valley Community Healthcare Inc. to produce the first U.S. population-based primary care establishment that serves an entire neighborhood.

THE PLAN:

Create population-focused healthcare by uniting health care workers to de-industrialize their professional lives.

Allow this united group to lead communities in building multidisciplinary teams and Neighborhood Health Stations. When a critical mass of Neighborhood Health Stations exist, modify existing state law to create the Rhode Island Primary Care Trust, a sustainable financing vehicle for Neighborhood Health Stations and for free, public primary care health services.
