Les Filles du Roi - Film Screening


Presented by Urban Ink, Corey Payette and Julie McIsaac

Tickets: $12 Film | $55 Film & Buffet Dinner (tax inc.)

Length: 1 hr 40 mins

Les Filles du Roi (The King's Daughters) is the powerful story of a young girl, Kateri, and her brother Jean-Baptiste whose lives are disrupted upon the arrival of les filles du roi in ‘New France’ (now Montreal) in 1665. They forge an unlikely relationship with the young fille Marie-Jeanne Lespérance - whose dream of a new life is more complicated than she could have imagined. Over the course of a year, Mohawk, French and English journeys collide, setting the stage for the Canada we know today.

Urban Ink has transformed their cutting-edge, award-winning musical theatre production, Les Filles du Roi, by Corey Payette and Julie McIsaac, into a gorgeous trilingual musical film written in English, French and Kanien’kéha (Mohawk) to debut in 2023. A deeply moving and unique work, this story is a perfect vehicle that uncovers a perspective different from the one told by Settler culture, one that redefines the Canadian narrative. Now beautifully shot with Payette’s directorial panache, the work will have a broader reach for people to reimagine our history in more inclusive and accurate ways.
