At the Canadian Cultural Centre, 7 p.m. Screening of the documentary followed by a debate.
The story begins in Canada in 1610 with the arrival in Ontario of the Frenchman Étienne Brûlé. Considered the ancestor of Franco-Ontarians, Etienne Brûlé is officially one of the historical heroes of the province of Ontario even though the particulars of his life are not well-known. However, certain historians see this as simply the glorification of popular beliefs and oral mythology. À la recherche d’Étienne Brûlé follows in the footsteps of Etienne Brûlé from Champigny-sur-Marne to Samuel Champlain’s expedition, his life with the Hurons, a coureur des bois who became a wealthy merchant – an exciting and surprising look at a remarkable life.
