Foreign film series presents ‘Marie’s Story’ at 7 p.m.

Bud Werner Memorial Library’s free foreign film series continues at 7 p.m. today at the Chief Theater with the French romance “Marie’s Story,” directed by Jean-Pierre Améris.

Before the film, Steamboat’s French Club will gather at 6 p.m. in the Chief Theater’s Black Box Lounge for conversational French, French wine specials and potluck appetizers. All French speakers are welcome.

The film is set at the turn of the 19th century, when a humble artisan and his wife have a daughter, Marie, who is born deaf and blind and unable to communicate with the world.

Desperate to find a connection to their daughter and avoid sending her to an asylum, the Heurtins send 14-year-old Marie to the Larnay Institute in central France, where an order of Catholic nuns manage a school for deaf girls. There, the idealistic Sister Marguerite sees in Marie a unique potential, and despite her Mother Superior’s skepticism, vows to bring the wild young thing out of the darkness into which she was born.

Based on true events, “Marie’s Story” recounts the courageous journey of a young nun and the lives she would change forever, confronting failures and discouragement with joyous faith and love. The screening includes an award-winning short film.
