Event Description
As part of the second edition of the Princeton French Film Festival, you're invited to the free screening of Sebastien Gagné's lovely and meaningful comedy "Coco Farm" (French: Coco Ferme) (2023). After his father faces financial struggles, twelve-year-old Max is forced to shut down the pawn shop he operates from his garage and move to a small country town. When Max discovers the world of small-scale farming, the young entrepreneur rallies the help of his cousin Charles, along with local youtuber Alice, to start an egg farming business in Charles’s old decaying barn. The animal-friendly Coco Farm quickly becomes a major hit, but the three partners soon find themselves facing the harsh realities of an industry controlled by mega-sized agribusinesses.

Free and open to everyone upon registration, this screening will take place on Saturday, April 20, 2024 at 11:00 AM (doors open at 10:45 PM) at the Princeton Public Library (1st floor, Community Room) in its original language (Canadian French) with English subtitles. The room is wheelchair-friendly; guests who need special accommodation should feel free to contact the Princeton Public Library at least 3 days in advance.
