MUSI 4283 Film Festival: "Sister Act"

November 15, 2019 (7:00 pm - 9:00 pm)


November 15 @ 7pm
Acadia Cinema's Al Whittle Theatre
Wolfville, NS
Admission: Freewill Donation
 
Presented as part of the Sisters On Screen Film Festival, "Sister Act" is the fictional story of a lounge singer on the run from the mob who finds sanctuary in a convent.  When she takes over the choir, though, life in the convent ceases to be quiet!
 
Deloris Van Cartier may be fictional, but she's not the first musical nun in history to defy convention.
 
The Sisters On Screen Film Festival is a class project organized by the students of MUSI 4283 (Women in Music).  Each of the three films (Nov. 13, 14 & 15) will begin with a pre-screening talk.  All donations raised will be put toward a scholarship to support a young girl's music education.
