On Saturday, April 2 at 7pm, in collaboration with the CT Chapter of the American Association of Teachers of French (AATF), Anne-Christine Rice of Tufts University in Boston will present Beyond Amélie: 10 French Films for Francophiles.
Are you a Francophile? Would you like to watch French films but don’t know where to start? Do you remember watching some New Wave movies but have not seen much lately? This presentation is for you! Anne-Christine Rice will present 10 post-1980 films: comedies, dramas, and many genres in between, big budget productions and independent movies, historical films and others dealing with contemporary issues, major hits and lesser-known films. Excerpts will be shown in French with English subtitles. No previous experience with French films or the French language needed.
Bring your favorite movies to this exciting discussion. Light refreshments will follow this presentation.
Anne-Christine Rice teaches French language and Film at Tufts University, where she is also the founder and director of the French Film Experience (French cine-club). She is the author of the best-selling textbook, “Cinema for French Conversation,” an exciting book for incorporating French cinema and culture into a French language course. Her other textbook, “La France contemporaine à travers ses films” leverages film to explore present-day French culture and society.
Admission is $10 for AFNWCT Members and $15 for non-members. Full time students studying French and over 21 may attend for free but must RSVP by calling (203) 707-0710.
