The Museum will be screening a full-length French language film produced in Québec each Saturday in March to celebrate Francophonie.
Synopsis: Raised in an orphanage run by nuns, Henri continued to live there after reaching adulthood, becoming responsible for the lighting around the property. Forced to leave his longtime home when the convent is sold to real estate developers, Henri is thrown into the world without a compass. He follows the advice of the sisters and “follows the signs of destiny” to a job as a lamplighter. Through encounters with a bitter old businessman who earned and lost a fortune making pickles and a dreamy cashier, Henri changes people’s lives.
