Two special presentations
On Monday, April 22, at 2 p.m., Cine-Cinema will be celebrating Earth Day by presenting the film Tout peut changer (Canada 2015), in French.
This documentary repeats the message in a book by the Canadian activist, Naomi Klein, in favour of a green economy to deal with climate change. Filmed in nine countries and five continents, the film suggests that the climate crisis offers an opportunity to improve society. It is a film for all. Admission is free.
On Saturday, April 27, at 7 p.m., The Little Green Library will be presenting the film, Massacre of the innocents, by Alain Boisvert, filmmaker and resident of Huntingdon, on Saturday, April 27 at 7 p.m. This film was recently presented as an official selection at the 2019 International Festival of Films on Art. It was also a finalist in the Benton Park Film Festival in St-Louis in the United States.
The film focuses on the artist, Detlef Gotzens, as he creates a contemporary work inspired by the painting by Pierre Paul Rubens, Massacre of the Innocents, which is on display in the Ontario Art Gallery in Toronto. This painting reflects a tragic period in the XXIth century offering the artist's intimate point of view through his creation.
Alain will be on hand and will be pleased to describe how the film was made and answer questions. The film is in English, Detlef Gotzens' language, with sub-titles in French. It is 21 minutes in length.
The Little Green Library supported the film's success through its socio-financing campaign.

New exhibition by Carole Gravel
We are pleased to announce a new exhibition by Carole Gravel.
Carole, who recently moved to Hinchinbrooke has been interested in all types of arts and crafts since she was a teenager, beginning with painting by number and mosaics. Later, as a young adult, she explored Japanese embroidery, petit point, macramé and three dimensions. In 2013, she discovered false stained glass and acrylic paint and has been painting every since. The exhibition presents a few of her works which, she hopes will please our visitors.
