A farm in Quebec is the star in next library film, Thursday, December 18 at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.

Anyone who has ever owned a farm can relate to the next movie at the Murphy Library. Gaby is a farmer in rural Quebec and has difficult choices to make when one of his daughters needs money and the farm is all he has.

The library is showing Film Movement’s The Auction, this Thursday at 4 p.m. and again at 6 p.m. The film is not rated but is high school appropriate. Running time is 111 minutes and the film is in French with subtitles in English

Director Sébastien Pilote is from this area of Quebec and used a 35 mm camera, rather than video to capture the beauty of the land, the farm and the lambs. That may be why it won at the Cannes Film Festival. According to Pilote, the actors were fine, but working with sheep in a movie is not easy, especially if one jumps in a lake. What do the rest do? They follow.
