CinéFeel : "Sans Maman"

For the International Day of Francophonie, Alliance française du Manitoba is happy to screen "Sans Maman", by Marie-France Guerrette, a franco-albertan filmmaker (who will be present for this occasion!)
On August 31, 1995, Guerrette's family life takes a dramatic turn. Mona, the mother, passes at 42 of the remnants of a breast cancer, leaving behind a husband and two daughters, Mylène and Marie-France, to which she bequeaths a tape containing the testimony of her life. How to recover, as a child, from the death of a parent? By recording her life, as well as her family's, Marie-France Guerrette welcomes us into her mourning. The archives, sometimes flawed or imprecise and filled with emotions, build the history of her family. Marked with authenticity, these interviews represent a freeing speech. Along her path, she discovers a heavy legacy: genetical cancer. This documentary has had many positive points on Marie-France's life - ease the mourning process, incitate a call for action, as well as anchoring her in the side of the livings.
