This program is hosted by LMU's Department of Modern Languages and Literatures, Bellarmine College of Liberal Arts. The featured films are documentaries, biopics, or fictions. They feature and tell stories on internationalization and intersectional identities in French / Francophone films via diverse experiences and topics such as Chau’s Return to Seoul (2022) where 25-year-old Freddie returns to South Korea where she was born before being adopted and raised in France; Hospitals as laboratories and places of care, suffering and hope, that literally connect every body in the world in De Humani Corporis Fabrica by Paravel and Castaing-Taylor (2022); 17-year-old Lucas’s coming of age in a new city, Paris, following a traumatic event that strips away everything he took for granted in Winter Boy by Honoré (2022); Saint Omer by Diop (2021) where novelist Rama attends the trial of a young woman accused of killing her 15-month-old daughter, shaking her convictions in the process; the now-classic Chocolat by Denis (1988) where a white woman who grew up in colonial French Africa returns after many years living in France and reflects on her childhood friendship with a Black servant while not fully grasping the racial divides that governed their worlds; In Colette and Justin (2022), filmmaker Kassanda, who embodies the classic immigrant dual identity, is determined to understand the colonial legacy from which he comes, by convincing his grandparents to sit for a series of interviews. Each film is presented and commented by LMU faculty who bring to the forefront interdisciplinary, intercultural and intersectional expertise; it is followed by discussions and Q/A with the audience.
