Watch a classic film in the language of love this Valentines Day! This classic love story depicts the ups and downs of a newlywed couple’s first months living together on a river barge with a gruff first mate and a band of unruly cats. As initial marital bliss fades into eventual routine, the couple begins to question their life together. Jean Vigo’s 1934 masterpiece about love, longing, and loneliness is often hailed as one of the most beautiful films of early French cinema. A short discussion led by Dr. Tara Smithson will follow the film.

Come early for a French-themed treats! Student Involvement will provide fresh crepes for this event from 5:30-6:15 in the ACEN lobby.

French Trivia from 6:00-6:15 in ACEN 101. Film begins at 6:15

Constructed from the words of author James Baldwin’s unfinished memoir, this documentary melds archival footage with Baldwin’s personal impressions of systemic injustice in the United States upon his return home after living in Paris for several years. Baldwin considers what it means to be black in America following the deaths of three civil rights activists and personal friends, Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, and Medgar Evers, just as director Raoul Peck explores the contemporary implications of Baldwin’s words, overlaying them with images of protests in Ferguson, Missouri. The film, which is in English, includes explicit language and images of violence. It is rated PG.

The documentary will be introduced by peace studies major and French minor Chris François. Afterward, a faculty panel will facilitate a Q&A. Participants include Alicia Dailey (social work), Beate Gilliar (English), Benson Onyeji (political science) and Mike Staudenmaier (history)

This film is a part of the Tournees Film Festival, sponsored by the French American Cultural Exchange in conjunction with the department of Modern Languages, the College of Arts and Humanities, and the President's Diversity and Inclusion Council.

The program is two hours long. Undergraduates are reminded to bring their student identification for credit.
