New French Cinema - Beyond Borders

Skies of Lebanon
Virtual Event

This event, part of UGA's Spotlight on the Arts festival and France-Atlanta, presents three movies from the 2021 Young French Cinema program as well as a virtual roundtable discussion with the filmmakers. All three films were created by women writer-directors and feature characters from outside of France. The End of Love (À Coeur battant) by Keren Ben Rafael is set in France and Israel; The Skies of Lebanon (Sous le ciel d’Alice) by Chloé Mazlo takes place in Beirut; and Should the Wind Drop (Si le vent tombe) by Nora Martirosyan follows a French inspector in Nagorno-Karabakh. The roundtable discussion will focus on storytelling, gender, and French culture beyond France’s borders.
