Celebrate Québécois Cinéma at the Museum of Work & Culture

 

(WOONSOCKET, R.I.) – The Museum of Work and Culture, a division of the Rhode Island Historical Society, is excited to welcome guests to Ciné-Québec, an evening of Québecois cinema in celebration of the month of Francophonie on Thursday, March 14, at the Museum. The evening will begin at 6pm with a wine and cheese reception in the MoWC gallery.

At 6:30pm, filmmaker Laurent Allaire will be joining us virtually to introduce the feature-length film being screened, Niagara. Niagara is a comedy-drama film that centers on three estranged brothers in their 50s who must reunite to undertake a road trip to Niagara Falls after their father unexpectedly dies of a heart attack while trying to participate in an ice bucket challenge. The film will be presented in French with English subtitles. Niagara features heavy subject matter and is rated for mature audiences.

Tickets are available for $25 and may be purchased at rihs.simpletix.com.

Opening statements are expected Monday in former President Trump's criminal trial in New York. The six alternate jurors have been seated and the 12 jurors are already in place. The former President is accused of falsifying business records in order to cover up payments allegedly made to an adult film star just prior to the 2016 election.       New York police say the man who set himself on fire outside the Donal Trump trial drove from Florida to New York City earlier this week. The man had some papers with him that detailed conspiracy theories involving local politics. He was taken to the hospital in critical condition.       President Biden is taking jabs at Donald Trump while rallying union workers in Washington, D.C. Biden delivered remarks at an International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers conference on Friday, where he said some people, including Trump, "learned the best way to get rich is inherit it." He also said those people " learn that paying taxes is for working people, not the super wealthy."        The House is expected to vote for final passage of House Speaker Mike Johnson's foreign aid package over the weekend. The House approved a rule vote today to begin debate on individual bills to provide military aid for Israel, Ukraine, and Taiwan. In an unusual move, Democrats voted with Republicans to advance the legislation as many conservatives voted no.        The FAA and United Airlines are investigating a video that appears to show a Colorado Rockies staff member in the cockpit during a flight. The incident happened during the team's April 10th chartered flight from Denver to Toronto. In the video posted on social media that has since been deleted, an unauthorized person appears to sit in the pilot's seat. United Airlines says at least two pilots have been removed from the job.       Horror film "Abigail" is looking to take the top spot at this weekend's box office. It's expected to make between 12-million and 15-million-dollars in its first weekend. "Abigail" is expected to just beat out last week's winner "Civil War" for first place.
