The featured films are documentaries, (meta) fictions, or hybrid genres. They tell stories on topics such as immigration stories invented and filmed by children who live in the suburbs of Paris (Un film dramatique / A Dramatic Film by Eric Baudelaire, 2019); gender (Petite fille / Little Girl by Sébastien Lifshitz, 2020); me too# drama of a young woman athlete (Slalom by Charlène Favier, 2020); racism and interracial relationships (La Permission / The Story of a Three-Day Pass by Melvin Van Peebles, 1967); storytelling as survival in the carceral world in the Ivorian forest (La nuit des rois / Night of the Kings by Philippe Lacôte, 2020); contemporary society and the power of the image untethered from its original context (La société du spectacle / The Society of the Spectacle by Guy Debord, 1974).

 

Each film is presented virtually by LMU faculty who bring to the forefront interdisciplinary and intercultural expertise; it is followed by discussions and Q/A with the audience on Zoom.
