Diversity Spotlight: School of Babel
Thursday, March 12, 2015 at 7 p.m.
Join us for the free Diversity Spotlight film screening of School of Babel. Nominated for Best Documentary at the 2015 Cesars, this film follows the lives of a group of youth who recently immigrated to France. They are Irish, Serbian, Brazilian, Tunisian, Chinese and Senegalese. During a year, Julie Bertuccelli filmed the exchanges, conflicts and joys of this group of students aged between 11 and 15 years old who all attend the same class to learn French. In this small theatre of the world, the innocence, energy and contradictions of these adolescents are expressed. Driven by the same desire to change their lives, these students challenge many established ideas about youth and integration, and give us hope for the future.
This film is rated G and presented in French with English subtitles in partnership with Alliance Française Halifax.
