Movie at the Library: Felix et Meira

Saturday, March 25 at 2 p.m. - In French
Félix and Meira is the story of an unconventional romance between two people living vastly different realities mere blocks away from one another. Each lost in their everyday lives, Meira, a Hasidic Jewish wife and mother and Félix, a Secular loner mourning the recent death of his estranged father, unexpectedly meet in a local bakery in Montreal’s Mile End district.

The movie screening will be followed by an enriching Q&A with one of the artists of the film.
