The Guardians (Les Gardiennes)

Tuesday 20th November 2018 - 7:45 pm - 10:20 pm, Palmer Building

In 1916 Limousin, the women of a farm, deftly guided by the family’s tough matriarch, grapple with the back-breaking workload as their husbands and sons are fighting in World War I. The film has an emotionally devastating, gritty and timeless approach to a seldom-told tale of the role of women in wartime France. Screened in the Special Presentations Section of the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival
