BLACK ROBE

Dir. Bruce Beresford (Canada: 1991), 101 min. Black Robe is set in 1634, in the French settlement which would eventually become present day Quebec City. A Jesuit priest, Father LaForgue, and his companion are escorted through the Quebec wilderness by Algonquin Indians. They have been sent by Samuel de Champlain to find a distant Catholic mission in a Huron village. The Jesuit missionary experiences a spiritual journey when his companion falls in love with the Algonquin chief’s daughter.
