Soirée Francophone: La Nouvelle France (Film evening)

  • Aug 9, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members


Bonjour tout le monde!

Ce vendredi nous allons commencer un rendez-vous regulier pour visioner les films francophones et nous invitons à toutes les personnes qui s'interessent pour la culture Québecoise et Française à venir! L'évènement sera chez moi à rue MacLaren. Je pense que nous allons nous réunir cette fois pour une soirée intime, mais j'en ai espace pour plusieurs d'autres. Jusqu'à maintenant il n'y avaient que 11 personnes qui ont m'avisé de leur présence. Respondez s'il vous plaît (RSVP) toute personne qui aimerait nous joindre. La soirée la première est ce vendredi. Les soirées à venir prendront lieux tous les deuxièmes samedis de chaque mois, alors la prochaine sera le 14 septembre, 2013.

Ici un résumé en bref du film:

L'époque [masked]), riche en bouleversements, est à cheval entre l'effondrement de la Nouvelle-France et l'instauration du régime anglais. C'est «un temps de toutes les passions». Inspirée de faits réels, l'histoire des amours tragiques d'une jeune paysanne du Bas Saint-Laurent et d'un audacieux aventurier se déroule ici à la manière d'une destinée inéluctable, en miroir d'une autre Histoire déjà écrite, celle de l'abandon du Canada par la France.


This Friday we'll begin our regular standing event time for watching francophone films from around the world. This falls on the second Friday of every month this time, but in future will be the second Saturday of every month. The next event after this one will be September 14th, 2013.

Here is a brief summary of the film:
The period [masked]), fraught with turmoil, straddles the collapse of New France and the establishment of British rule. It is "a time of all the passions." Inspired by true events, it is the tragic story of a young peasant of The Lower St. Lawrence (Bas Saint-Laurent) and of a bold adventurer, which takes place here of the fashion in which destiny appears unavoidable, mirroring a story that has already been written, that of the abandonment of Canada by France.

Come one, come all and be prepared to practice your French!

    I have a sister who lives in France and some close friends. It would be interesting to learn more about France.

      Anna I am not sure how Chris is going to do this film as it is his event. OIC is doing our best to insure occasional focus on french culture and language. I am very glad that we have chosen this film. I did some asking around to numerous French Canadians, and this film is supposedly very good. It is my desire that we will have a monthly french speaking salon. the way it is set up at this time is something like this. We encourage english speakers to attend, as long as it does not turn into an english speaking event. This has happened before mostly due to people trying to accommodate to me. I can deal with it. If people find our focus on french offensive, I think they do not understand the heart and soul of Ottawa International Connection. French Canadians are very welcome in this forum and while my french is lacking, it is my hope we will have more french led events. :)
