Time: All Day
Location: Cantor Film Center & Other NYU Venues.
This three-day film festival will explore changing representations of blackness in French cinema through a cross-disciplinary approach. The festival will include screenings of different kinds of films from different periods and regions: documentaries, features, and shorts — many of them rarely available in the U.S. Themes will include the legacy of colonial representations of black French people, housing projects, new intimacies across the racial line, and African-Americans in France. Roundtables will bring together directors, actors, and scholars from France and the U.S.
Presented by Institute of French Studies, Cinema Studies and Institute of African American Affairs.
Cosponsored by the Department of French Literature, Thought, and Culture, and the Center for French Language and Cultures.
