About the Event
Join Learn French BK and fellow movie fans to discuss, debate, and celebrate French films every Saturday at 5pm! This free workshop is open to all! Whether you're a seasoned cinephile, a movie-newbie, or just someone who wants/needs a place to geek out with fellow French film lovers.
This week, we'll review My Golden Days (Trois souvenirs de ma jeunesse). The story centers on Paul Dédalus, an anthropologist preparing to leave Tajikistan, who has a series of flashbacks that include his childhood in Roubaix, his mother's attacks of madness and his father's alienating depression. He remembers his trip to the USSR, where a clandestine mission led him to offer up his own identity for a young Russian, whom he considered a phantom twin for the remainder of his life as well as remembering Esther, the beautiful, rude love of his life.
Free streaming link will be provided upon registration. This workshop discussion is in English.
