Second Annual Francophone Film Festival at AASU

The AASU Second Annual Francophone Film Festival will take place April 1-3, 2010 in the Fine Arts Auditorium. Is it made possible through a program called Tournées Festival, a subsidiary of FACE (The French American Cultural Exchange). It is organized by The AASU French Club, the Department of Languages, Literature and Philosophy, the College of Liberal Arts as well as the Office of International Education.

All feature presentations are free and open to the AASU and Savannah communities. Please advertise to your friends, neighbors and families.
(Donations will be accepted at the event.)

The program is as follows:

Thursday April 1st, 2010, 7 pm- Reception to follow (catered by
Papillote)
La Graine et le Mulet (The Secret of the Grain). Award winning film that raises issues of immigration, job insecurity and family values: themes that are extremely current and of interest to a great variety of people.

Friday April 2nd 2010.
6 pm- Un Secret (A Secret) and
8:30 pm- Entre les murs (The Classroom)
both films offer themes that are a bit more problematic, considering that the first one is about World War Two and Nazi occupation, and the second one is about teaching French to a multi-ethnic classroom- a result of the French colonization. Both films raise questions of choices, values, ethics, history, and the consequences of our actions.

Saturday April 3rd:
6 pm: Azur et Asmar (Azur and Asmar) (This is a cartoon, suitable for
children)
8:30 pm- Les Amours d’Astrée et de Céladon (The Romance of Astrea and
Celadon)
With these two features, we will finish the festival with themes such as freedom, honor and love- great values with which to leave an event.

Please contact Dr. Dorothee Mertz-Weigel
(dorothee.mertz-weigel@armstrong.edu) if you have any questions.
We hope to see you there!
