One Summer – April 20th at 7.30pm
One Summer • Saturday April 20 • 7.30 pm 120 min
At Hudson Village Theatre
For more than 25 years, street chaplain and parish priest Marc Côté has lived with the poor and the homeless at his church. Exhausted and with bills piling up, Marc faces the prospect of shutting everything down. Like a call from Providence, he inherits a property in the Bas-du-Fleuve region and takes a group of homeless people there on vacation with him. A crowd-pleaser with a little Montreal grit and a sense of humour. Is it time to declare director Louise Archambault (her, And The Birds Rained Down closed our 2020 Festival) Canada’s humanist filmmaker? Her One Summer, is further proof that she captures the poetry of life in a way that few artists do.
