Film Night

Sunday April 18 at 4pm | Zoom

Film: Monsieur Lazhar, 2011, 1h35, director Philippe Falardeau, with Mohamed Fellag

Plot: At a Montréal public grade school, an Algerian immigrant is hired to replace a popular teacher who committed suicide in her classroom. While helping his students deal with their grief, his own recent loss is revealed.

NB: Since 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 Amazon 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. Details about how to join us will be shared via email closer to the event date.
