The Home Road

Please Note: This film is no longer showing at Railroad Square Cinema

In 1845, 19-year-old Israel Shevenell left his home in Canada and walked nearly 200 miles to Biddeford, Maine. He found work as a brick maker and is recognized as the city’s first permanent French-Canadian settler and French voter. In 2015, his 74-year-old great-great-grandson, Ray Shevenell, retraced the pioneering journey, walking from Compton, Quebec to Biddeford. Maine filmmaker Tonya Shevenell tells their stories in her first documentary film, THE HOME ROAD. Join us for a preview screening of the brand new film and for discussion with the filmmaker and her father, Ray. Unrated. 78 Min. FREE and open to the public!
