Film Presentation

Join filmmaker Phil Comeau for the viewing of his film Zachary Richard, Cajun Heart at the Grand-Pré Interpretation Centre Theatre.

Friday, August 11, 2017 & Saturday, August 12, 2017

5:00pm - 7:00pm

ZACHARY RICHARD, CAJUN HEART by Phil Comeau.
(3 awards in Canada and the United States, and presented at the United Nations in Geneva) Singer Zachary Richard searches his Acadian roots in the Maritime Provinces and in Louisiana. Addressing the theme of the resilience of the Acadian people and their ancestral relationship with the Mi’kmaq nation, Zachary travels on a quest to find the contemporary Acadian identity. In 1755, the British deport the Acadians and the links are broken. With his troubling history, will Zachary be able to reconcile himself with his past and forgive his aggressors to better face the future?
