Passport to World Cinema Series: Our Children
Aug 22 2013 7:30PM - 9:30PM
Presented by the School of Film and the Philadelphia Film Society, the "Passport to World Cinema" monthly film series features the past year's strongest cinema from around the globe. Each of the screenings – shown on 35mm film when possible – will include a notable international film title from the recent film festival circuit and a post-screening talkback led by a local film connoisseur.
This month features "Our Children" by director Joachim Lafosse, a hit at last year's Cannes Film Festival and widely hailed by critics as the best undistributed film of 2012.
Suzanne Gauch is associate professor of English at Temple University, where she teaches postcolonial, gender and film studies. She is the author of Liberating Shahrazad: Feminism, Postcolonialism, and Islam (2007), and numerous essays on African and Maghrebi literature and film. She is a recent recipient of a Fulbright Fellowship to Morocco and is currently completing a book on contemporary North African cinema.
Screenings are $5 for the general public and free to both University of the Arts ID holders and Philadelphia Film Society members.
