Directed by Bruce Beresford
1634 began the French colonization of Canada through
Catholic missions. Black Robe tells the story of an extraordinary
priest who braved the North American wilderness and extreme cultural
difference to carry his message from Europe. An important indictment of
the Church's refusal to assimilate other cultures, and the tragic
corruption of Native American societies by the West. From the director of
Driving Miss Daisy and Breaker Morant. 101 minutes.
