When: March 16 at 1:30pm

Where: The Museum of Work & Culture, 42 S. Main St., Woonsocket, R.I.

Museum of Work & Culture Presents Saturday Afternoon Screening

(WOONSOCKET, R.I.) – On Saturday, March 16, the Museum of Work & Culture will present the final installment of its Cinema Saturdays series with a screening of the Québecois film, Pieds nus dans l’aube.  The film will be shown at 1:30pm with English subtitles. The screening is included with the price of MoWC admission ($8/adults, $6/students & seniors, free/children under 10).

 

In February 1927, 12-year-old Félix Leclerc meets Fidor, a young man from a disadvantaged background, while delivering wood with his father. The two boys develop a close friendship, but will have to separate because Felix has to leave to study in Ottawa in a classical college. Although aware of what this opportunity represents, Félix dreads leaving his family and all those familiar things he cares deeply about.

 

The series is a part of the Museum’s celebration of Francophonie, a month-long celebration of French language and culture in New England. It is made possible with the support of the Québec Delegation in Boston.

The Special Counsel is submitting his final report of Russia interference in the 2016 election. Attorney General Bill Barr notified Congress that Robert Mueller [[ MULL-er ]] has finished his work and submitted the final report. No details have been released. Barr wrote in a letter to Congressional leaders that he might be able to brief them on the contents of the report as early as this weekend.        The White House is claiming it has not seen the Special Counsel's final report. Press Secretary Sarah Sanders says they have not seen the report and were not briefed on its contents. Mueller submitted a confidential report to Attorney General Bill Barr today. Sanders said the next steps are up to Barr. President Trump's lawyers said they're pleased Mueller's office has delivered its report. They added that Barr determines the "appropriate next steps."        Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is one of many Democrats calling for the Special Counsel report to be made public. Schumer remarked that the American people have a right to the truth. He added that Barr should make Mueller's report public without giving the White House a say in what's released.        Texas is suing over this week's massive fire in Deer Park. Attorney General Ken Paxton says Intercontinental Terminals Company violated the Texas Clear Air Act when flames broke out last Sunday at its Deer Park facility. Flames briefly rekindled today but have now been put out.        The Governor of Iowa is asking President Trump to declare flooding in that state a disaster and to set aside one-point-six billion dollars. Almost 60 counties in the state could request funds because of the flooding that heavily damaged agricultural areas.        Saturday's Powerball jackpot should be the fourth largest in the drawing's history. It is expected to reach 625 million dollars after no one won on Wednesday. There hasn't been a Powerball winner since January.
