Scope and content

Item consists of an a Haitian Canadian family’s home movie featuring the family in New York celebrating a birthday and Christmas. Video was filmed by André and Ginette Valcin.

Project and donor(s) contributed description follows: "It's November 1969 in New York City and the Valcin Family is celebrating Nadine's dad's birthday. Four-year-old Nadine waves at the camera and helps blow out her father's candles. We see Nadine's mother cutting the cake. Later in the day, Nadine, drinking her juice from a cocktail glass, is engrossed in a serious conversation with her father. Her mom is behind the camera shooting on Super 8mm film. At Christmas, the camera is pulled once more, a very exciting time for Nadine who was an only child. This private but celebratory occasion is one the whole family dresses up for. Nadine dons an all-white pantsuit she later swaps for something more comfortable, while her parents sport equally stylish crisp suits. The clothes become secondary to the gift unraveling — the toy car, doll, keyboard, all slowly collecting around her. André Valcin passed in 1999, so the Valcin family was happy to revisit these memories of him."
