Event Details:

Fri, Sept. 13 Cinema Politica Fredericton presents "Acadia Acadia"

Originally produced as a motion picture in 1971 and directed by Michel Brault & Pierre Perrault. It shows on-the-spot filming of the Université de Moncton students' protest in support of greater recognition of the French presence in New Brunswick. The film records not only the demonstrative parts of the 1968-69 campaign--street marches, petitions, a sit-in--but also the self-searching and the discussion and analysis of their cause that went on among the students themselves in their efforts to re-establish an Acadian identity.

The film will screen Friday, Sept. 13 at 7:00 pm at Conserver House, 180 Saint John St., Fredericton. Films are free but donations are encouraged. Join us for discussion after the film with Dr. Chantal Richard from the Department of French Studies at the University of New Brunswick, co-host of the event.
