Explore the diversity of French-language film from around the world.  Each month, a film from one of the regions influenced by French language and culture will be available for viewing, then we will gather virtually at the end of the month to discuss it.  We’ll pay special attention to the relationship between the region’s primary culture and the colonial influences on it.  This month’s film is Rice People, a 1994 Cambodian film by Rithy Panh chronicling one family’s efforts to bring in a rice crop after the fall of the Khmer Rouge dictatorship. Though some French may be spoken in the meetings, they are open to people of all skill levels, and we will make sure that everyone can follow the discussion.
