“Gloria & the Pipers” video screening

Library Program Room
Mansfield Public Library
What’s an “ole gal” like Gloria doing in a small hamlet in Normandy, France? Putting on a bagpiping festival of course!
Follow American ex-pat Gloria Girton as she and the village mayor put on the 4th annual Festival de Cornemuses, and play host to a motley group of pipers from England, Scotland, and France. “Gloria & the Pipers” was made by local film-maker Bénédicte Naudin. This was her first long form documentary. Shot in Le Vicel and Monfarville in the Cotentin region of France, not far from the D-Day beaches, the film is 1h 10 mins and will be followed by a brief Q&A.
This program is free and open to the public.
