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 are subtitled in English and screening is included with the price of museum admission, purchased at the door.
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.
