Le cinéma français et les minorités

Don't miss an opportunity to study the French cinéma through the lens of racial and social inequalities. This is a new addition to our French à la carte program!

You will study two award-winning movies, Intouchables and Indigènes, each over a two-week period. First, the teacher will cover the cinematographic techniques, the plot and vocabulary specific to each film. Then students will discuss racial questions and inequalities shown in the plot and  also study the historic and social context.

The class is designed for B1-C1 level students and meets every Thursday at 6 pm for 1.5 hours over 4 weeks. July 16 - August 6.

Sign up for a bundle of four for $105 or drop in on any single class for $28.
