Tournées Film Festival
Contemporary French Cinema: Appartenances: Communities and Belonging
This series features a variety recent French films that focus on various kinds of communities and the modes by which individuals connect or belong to them. The great director Agnès Varda takes a look at village life (Visages, Villages). Two films examine the relation between individuals and cultural constructions of race: one, a biopic of James Baldwin (I Am Not Your Negro), the other, an influential collaborative film made in the Ivory Coast (Moi un Noir). Other films range from an animated comedy for audiences of all ages (Le grand méchant Renard), to a classic of socially committed cinema (Le crime de Monsieur Lange), to an award-winning epic on the founding of the HIV activist group ACT UP Paris in the 1990s (120 battements). (see http://face-foundation.org/tournees-film-festival/ for more information on each).
