Film Night

Sunday September 27 at 4pm | Zoom

In light of the global pandemic, we propose to discuss the movie The Horseman on the Roof, which is based on Jean Giono’s classic novel. Starring Juliette Binoche and Olivier Martinez.

Synopsis: In 1832, cholera ravages Provence, France. After several misadventures, Angelo, an Italian officer hunted by the Austrian secret police, meets Pauline de Theus, a young countess. Together, they travel in search of Pauline’s husband in a chaotic country and soon develop feelings for one another…

NB: Because we cannot gather together to watch the film, the soirée ciné event will be conducted as follows. Before the event, you can watch the film on Youtube at your convenience. Then, we will meet at 4pm the day-of to discuss the film over Zoom. A warm thank you to Director Pascale Richards-Deliens, who will facilitate the discussion.

If you would like to join us, please RSVP
