La Main Screening in Montreal
May 28, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Premiere public screening of the English language film “La Main” by Montreal producer Paul Carvalho. La Main tells the story of Italian, Jewish, and Chinese people who settle along Saint-Laurent Boulevard, and the first encounters of French Canada with the rest of the world beyond the British Isles. Each of these groups has enriched Montreal with their cultural traditions, but they have also suffered in different ways from prejudice and outright racism.
Join us for culinary delights from the three communities and a walk down memory lane with speakers and the film-maker.
In partnership with Congregation Dorshei Emet.
Members of Mountain Lake PBS and Dorshei Emet: $18
General admission: $25 ($30 at the door)
We thank our generous community sponsors for proudly supporting the diversity that is Montreal!
