Free Francophone film screenings in Bham

This is a guest post by Dr Claire Peters, one of my colleagues at the University of Birmingham
Two FREE AHRC Francophone film events in Birmingham next week!

I would like to draw your attention to two forthcoming AHRC-supported film screenings which directly relate to French and Francophone Studies, and which will take place as part of the University of Birmingham Arts and Science Festival.

These events are free and arise from partnerships between the Modern Languages Department at the University of Birmingham and local arts and cultural organisations.

Wednesday 16th March 2016 4.30pm-6.30pm, MAC Birmingham: screening of Sugar Cane Alley / Rue Cases-Nègres [dir. Euzhan Palcy, 1983].

This screening will be introduced by PhD student Antonia Wimbush and followed by a Q&A session with Dr Louise Hardwick about her AHRC Fellowship work on Joseph Zobel. For more details and for booking:


Thursday 17th March 2016 7pm-9.30pm, The Drum, in partnership the University of Birmingham and the NCCCS, will host a screening of Black Skin, White Mask [dir. Isaac Julien, 1996]. For more details and booking information:
