French Film Festival

Join the French Program and the Modern Language Department in celebrating the annual Albertine Cinémathèque Film Festival.

This year the thematic covers important aspects of social issues: including transgender discrimination, emotional and physical abuse, access to education in sensitive areas, the effects of war, etc. We hope you will enjoy the movies and reflecting on these important topics. 

The fourth movie will be A dramatic film and will be shown in person on Wednesday, April 13 at 10am in Janikies Theatre.

Movie description:

Commissioned as a dedicated artwork for the newly constructed Dora Maar middle school on the outskirts of Paris, Un Film Dramatique is a lively portrait of the first class to attend the school, filmed over the course of four years. The group of 21 middle schoolers discuss the drama of their daily lives and experiment with cameras and equipment. They are the film’s subjects, and also its makers.

With a refreshingly uninhibited approach, Éric Baudelaire (Letters to Max, The Anabasis of May…) offers a new perspective on the realities of our current socio-political moment that is both playful and purposeful. As the students debate the approaching elections and the immigration crisis, they also seek to answer a key political question—what are we doing here together?
