French and Francophone Studies Film Series - Spring 2021

Profs. Bénédicte López and Richard Stroik, Co-Coordinators

 

Our theme this semester is Cultural Divide and Union.

To explore the theme, we have chosen four films that examine the struggle against cultural stereotypes (gender, race, nationality, class, age, etc.) affecting individuals in all societies.

Students will watch films (with English subtitles) at home and participate in discussion groups (limited to 30 students from all FFS classes) on Zoom. In order to accommodate all levels of linguistic proficiency, we will hold discussions in English.

To receive the list of questions to consider while watching the film along with the Zoom link to the discussion group, email FFSFilmSeries@sandiego.edu.  Kindly include the film title in the subject line.
