Not likely to be a dry eye in the store during 9 a.m. screening of short film about deli manager Archel Imperial
Above, Pier 21 / Quai 21 and Sobeys teamed up tell the inspiring and emotional immigration story of Winchester Foodland deli manager Archel Imperial, in this film showcasing the Chesterville-area resident.
Above, Deli manager Archel ‘Archie’ Imperial was surrounded by friends and colleagues as Winchester Foodland and Sobeys screened the short film featuring her immigrant-experience, this morning at the North Dundas store. Produced by Clothesline Media, the movie is a joint venture of the Pier 21 / Quai 21 immigration museum in Halifax and Nova Scotia-based Sobey’s. Coinciding with Canada’s 150th and the grocery retailer’s 110th anniversaries, the initiative chronicles the stories of several people who have made their way to Canada from other parts of the world. Imperial’s story earned the highest profile among the entries; the Chesterville-area resident wound up on the cover of Sobey’s annual general shareholders’ meeting booklet earlier this month, and the film about her relocation from the Philippines made its debut in front of 300 people at that meeting. The video is also featured at the Pier 21 museum for posterity.
