The Kingston Canadian Film Festival presents IL PLUEVAIT DES OISEAUX (AND THE BIRDS RAINED DOWN)
Director: Louise Archambault
Featuring: Andrée Lachapelle, Gilbert Sicotte, Rémy Girard
Language: French subtitled in English
Runtime: 127 minutes
A favourite at the KCFF thanks to features like the festival’s 2014 opener GABRIELLE, director Louise Archambault returns with another film that’s rich with insight, humour and warmth. Deep in the Quebec countryside, three hermits who dropped out of society decades before are compelled to contend with the world once again. Full of scenery that’s as rich and vivid as the performances by such legendary Canadian actors as Andrée Lachapelle, Rémy Girard and Kenneth Welsh, Archambault’s latest is an unforgettable meditation on the potential for new directions and new discoveries in our lives even when, like the musician played so wonderfully by Girard, we’re nearing the end of the songs we sing.
To mark our 20th anniversary, we’re launching the Live the Experience Fund that will provide tickets for local schools and community groups to attend the Festival and live the experience first hand. Donations to the fund have an immediate impact. Simply follow the DONATION LINK below to support the fund!
