About the Movies
Avril et le monde truqué
Paris, 1941. In a strange alternate-history world, where electricity was never invented and scientists are hunted down by authorities, a young girl named Avril sets off in search of her missing scientist parents, in the company of Darwin, her talking cat, and Julius, a young street rascal.
Avril et le monde truqué will be screened to CPF members via livestream at 3 p.m. PST on Feb. 15, 2021.
Louis Cyr: L’homme le plus fort du monde
In the late 19th century, after years of delighting crowds with astounding feats of strength, Louis Cyr was considered the strongest man in the world.
Based on his true story, this charming biopic recounts the many successes, heartbreaks and obstacles — both inside and out of the athletic arena — that Cyr faced on his climb from obscurity to international fame. Cyr’s best friend recounts the story to the strongman’s estranged daughter, and shares with us the fascinating life of this Quebec hero.
Louis Cyr: L’homme le plus fort du monde will be screened to CPF members via livestream at 7 p.m. PST on Feb. 15, 2021.
