The Québec Government Office in Washington is excited that the film “Hochelaga, terre des âmes (Hochelaga, Land of Souls)” will again be screened in the American capital, during AFI Silver Theatre and Cultural Center's Canada Now Film Series. This epic narrative offers a kaleidoscopic take on history that prompts timely reflection on the role of origin, identity, and place in shaping the soul of a nation.
Once again this year, the American Film Institute’s Silver Theatre will be showing several feature films from la Belle Province at the Canada Now film series. From July 16 to September 3, discover the six Québécois films among this year’s thirteen Canadian selections. There’s more: you can win free tickets with our #TwittoTriviaBQW contest!
