“Mon Cher Camarade” Will Screen At The Smithsonian’s American History Museum On March 31st

21 March 2010

Pat Mire’s most recent film, “Mon Cher Camarade,” is one of six films, and the only film from the United States, that will be screened at the Francophonie 2010 Cultural Festival taking place in Washington, D.C., through April 11, 2010. The film, which tells the story of the role of French-speaking Cajuns in WWII, will be screened on Wednesday, March 31, 2010, at 7:00 p.m. at the Smithsonian’s Carmichael Auditorium at the American History Museum. Pat, who will be in attendance for the film screening, will be introduced by the President of the Francophonie Festival, Jean-Stephane Bernard, who is also the head of the Quebec Government Office in Washington, D.C. More information on the Festival, including ticket prices, can be found at

“This was a great surprise to me,” said Pat. “This is not a festival where you submit your film for possible selection. They select 4 to 6 films every year from around the world to be screened at this prestigious cultural festival in Washington, D.C.”

“Mon Cher Camarade” was co-produced by Pat Mire Films and Louisiana Public Broadcasting. It was made possible by funding from the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities.
