Streamable Quebecois Films: Grand Cru

Beginning Thursday, March 18, stream the Quebecois documentary Grand Cru, chronicling the lifework of Pascal Marchand, an aspiring poet from Montreal, arrived in the mythical land of Burgundy, France to work the harvest at age 21. Enchanted by the region, he settled there and embarked on an unlikely path to winemaking stardom. Now over 30 years later, he is renowned as an artist and innovator, finding his inspiration in the ancient techniques of the Cistercian monks who meticulously studied and refined Burgundy’s winemaking in the middle ages. Shot over his most difficult year ever, the catastrophic 2016 season which saw devastating frosts, hailstorms and disease in the vineyards, the film is both a love letter and a cautionary tale, as winemakers like Pascal must face the unpredictable and destructive consequences of climate change. The film will be available for 72-hours, with registrants receiving the link on the afternoon of March 18th.

A $5 donation is suggested.

This offering is made possible by the Délegation of Québec in Boston and details of registrants may be provided to the Delegation.
