- Please join us monthly for the film series: "Identity" !
The films of this Spring semester's French Film Series, "Identity," represent contemporary french films from well-known "auteurs" in French and francophone cinema that express a new "tendancany" in French cinema - questions of identity and gender. Each film tackles and represents these questions in different ways, using cinema as a medium not only to transmit a certain message but also to explore how cinema as a medium, with its conventions, can be used to problematize identity.
All films are free and open to Roanoke College community, students and Staff
All films have English Subtitles
All films will be shown in Lucas 125
