Reveil – Waking up French is a powerful documentary film that explores the struggle for cultural survival among the French-Canadian, Franco-American communities of New England. The film traces the French heritage beginning with immigration from the Canadian provinces of Quebec and Acadia through persecution by KuKluxKlan and language loss, to cultural renaissance and heritage preservation. Through their determined loyalty to the French Catholic faith, language and cultural values, the French of New England continue to discover new ways of renewal and cultural diversity through heritage language reaquisition.

 

Waking up French…! Reveil was produced by Ben Levine
